Cher Will of Christiansted, St Croix, US Virgin Islands, has donated another AED to a deserving facility in St Croix. Cher Will is the project director of the AED Fund at St Croix Foundation. Cher started the fund back in 2008 after using her own personal AED to save a life, and learning the local fire station did not have one.
The recipient of this AED is American Legion Post 85 in Christiansted. In light of Cher’s impressive work and commitment to making St. Croix a “heart safe” place to live and visit, Annuvia was pleased to donate a HeartSine Samaritan AED to her cause.
“AED Superstore called me and said Annuvia heard of my project and wanted to donate an AED,” she said. “I am so proud of our vets. They have given so much for us. We need to give back to our veterans.”
Through the AED Fund and Cher’s efforts, 35 AEDs have been donated to various services (police, fire, first responders, National Guard, Coast Guard), public parks and other public locations. According to Will, “we have AEDs in 81 locations and we have 111 AEDs.” The American Heart Association has reported that, per capita, St Croix has the most AEDs in the nation.
