We all have the power to fight sudden cardiac arrest
This is Europe's leading cause of death, affecting over 300.000 people each year. The Live is Life Foundation works across Europe to raise awareness and empower people to save more lives.
We can save over

Learning how to perform CPR and use an AED is crucial. That is why we offer modern methods and systems for training ordinary citizens in how to save a life and be prepared for an emergency.
