We are working on deploying approximately 300 Avive AEDs in Cumberland County and are looking to our Cumberland County citizens to join the CARE Team (Cardiac Arrest Rapid Engagement) by hosting an AED free of charge! CARE Team members will be trained on how to perform high quality hands-only CPR and how to use an AED. You can help save the life of someone in Cumberland County.

Peyton was a true adventure-seeker and absolutely loved and embraced the outdoors. She enjoyed snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, 4-wheeling in her Jeep Wrangler, and anything that involved adventure.
Peyton never allowed her heart condition to limit her lifestyle or define who she was. She lived life in a manner that most would envy – full of energy and passion, never missing an opportunity to share a laugh or give a hug to someone who needed it. Peyton was fully dedicated and looking forward to working in the healthcare field upon completion of her PA studies at King’s College.
