Phoenix, AZ, United States, February 11, 2013 -- Mercy Jets has announced
it will make contributions to heart-related charities during the month of
February in honor of Heart Month. The advanced air ambulance
transportation and medical escort company is placing a special focus on
cardiac and heart-related health.
While the medical transport provider regularly donates a portion of its
income to non-profit organizations, Mercy Jets will donate twice that
amount during Heart Month, with the additional portion directed toward
several heart-related charities.
“Many of the non-profit groups we contribute to on a regular basis are
instrumental in educating people about the warning signs of heart-related
emergencies and how to better take care of their hearts,” said John Bohn,
president of Mercy Jets. “Simple things such as getting regular exercise
and eating right can make the difference between leading a normal life
and having heart disease or cardiac arrest.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in
three deaths in the U.S. results from heart disease and stroke. More than
2 million people nationwide have heart attacks or strokes each year.
“When it comes to heart-related emergencies, timing in transport is
critical,” Bohn said. “Many of our transport patients are in need of
cardiac care, so we see the need for heart-related education and
assistance first-hand. This is our way of helping a very good cause.”
