Damar Hamlin gives Tom Brady and LeBron James a challenge they can complete in “three easy steps.”
BILLS star Damar Hamlin has urged Tom Brady and LeBron James to join his new CPR campaign.
The 24-year-old Buffalo safety suffered cardiac arrest on the field Jan. 2 during the Bills vs. Bengals game.
Hamlin was saved thanks to CPR performed by heroic on-site first responders.
He has since made a remarkable recovery, leaving the hospital on Jan. 11 and participating in the Bills’ playoff game days later.
Hamlin spoke out for the first time after his ordeal over the weekend, revealing he is still “processing” the incident.
Now he has unveiled his new campaign, in which he is working with the American Heart Association to help teach as many people as possible about CPR.
And he wants to include newly retired Brady and LeBron in the initiative.
Hamlin explained: “As you know, CPR saved my life in the field earlier this year.
“And CPR could easily save your life or someone you live.
“That’s why I’m proud to announce that I’m partnering with the American Heart Association to start Damar Hamlin’s Three for Heart CPR Challenge.
“Three easy steps – Step one, go to heart.org/3 to watch a short video on how to learn manual CPR.
“Step two, donate to the AHA to fund awareness and education about CPR.
“And step three, challenge three friends to do the same.”
Hamlin then tagged LeBron, Brady and former first lady Michelle Oba in his viral post.
After his dramatic ordeal, the Pennsylvania native wants to step up his community service.
Hamlin said in an emotional video last weekend: “What happened to me on Monday Night Football I think was a direct example of God using me as a vessel to take my passion and love straight from my heart to the whole world split.
“Now I can give it back to children and communities around the world who need it most.
“It has always been my dream, what I stood for and what I continue to stand for.”
