On the morning of June 12, 2014, Donald collapsed on the floor in front of his bathroom. Struggling to breathe, he realized it would impossible to reach a phone. He knew he needed help, and pressed his medical emergency button.

 Alertcare America's monitoring center team member, Stevie, answered his call. She quickly dispatched paramedics and called his emergency contacts to apprise them of the situation while paramedics transported Donald to the hospital.

 Donald had experienced acute atrial fibrillation. His pulse was very weak when paramedics arrived, but precious time had been saved by Stevie's response. Doctors confirmed that those critical moments saved his life.

"I'm just so thankful for my device and thankful for second chances," remarked Donald. He has put his second chance to great use, getting more physical exercise as well as enjoying the company of family and loved ones.

 "God wasn't ready for me yet." Donald added, with emotion in his voice, "He must have more things for me to do!"
