THE WOODLANDS, TX – In July of this year, Meagan Kelley, a youthful 36-year-old local singer/songwriter, suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at home in The Woodlands. Her mother called 911, and immediately a team of paramedics and firefighters rushed to the home and performed CPR and other life-saving interventions to save the young woman’s life.

Earlier today, former patient Meagan and her saviors met again at a ‘Save Reunion’ at the Montgomery County Hospital District Administration Building in Conroe. Each member of the team who saved Meagan, led by Captain Travis Clay, spent a few minutes recounting their recollections of the event to Meagan and her mother – Meagan herself still suffers from partial amnesia, stating that she “lost about two weeks” of memory. Meagan then presented each member of these emergency services a special Lifesaver Award.

Award recipients include Captain Clay, Johna Gilson, Paul Gregory, Angelica Knight, Robert Matthews, Scott Sanders, Richard Sanguedolce, and William Sharp.

Meagan is doing well and getting back into singing after making a full recovery. This is such a rare outcome and shows the importance of CPR in saving someone’s life and protecting them from disability. Megan is excited to reunite with the first responders who cared for her that day.
