"Little Silver model mom launches C.H.A.S.E. for Life"


LITTLE SILVER
Farley Boyle, the mother of three girls and successful model currently starring in Discovery Health Network's "Runway Moms," is on a mission to save children's lives. Inspired by her daughter Chase's near drowning and rescue by CPR, she founded C.H.A.S.E. for Life, a non-profit organization that stands for CPR, Heimlich, Awareness, Safety, Education to prevent needless deaths throughCPR/Heimlich education programs and community outreach initiatives nationwide.

The day after C.H.A.S.E. for Life Founder and Executive Director Farley Boyle came home from the hospital with her third baby girl, she almost lost her two-year-old daughter, Chase, as she slipped off the family's boat into the water in a near-drowning incident. Fortunately, her husband was able to revive their daughter by administering CPR until medical assistance arrived.

"The smartest decision I made while pregnant with my first child was enrolling my husband and me in an optional infant/child CPR course," states Boyle. "After living through this terrifying ordeal and what would have become the end of our perfect lives, we realized we were given a second chance and wanted to give back to the community immediately."

Boyle created C.H.A.S.E. for Life hoping that her experience would empower others to become educated in CPR/Heimlich. "What mother wouldn't want to be armed with this knowledge when it could mean the difference between life and death of a child," states Boyle. Since its inception as a gathering of family and friends for CPR/Heimlich instruction with local EMT volunteers at Boyle's home, C.H.A.S.E. for Life has rapidly grown, leading the way in CPR/Heimlich education with school and group workshops, promotion of mandatory education in hospitals for first time mothers, innovative child safety information, instructional resources and media distributed nationwide.

C.H.A.S.E. for Life has recently received the Kids Day America/International Children's empowerment Award for its commitment to the safety and overall welfare of children and has received financial support from Aetna. "This campaign aligns perfectly with our commitment to get critical information on prevention and wellness to Aetna members, and now, with our sponsorship of C.H.A.S.E. for Life, we can help expand the message to parents everywhere," said James Reid, Northeast Regional Manager at Aetna. With a stable of dedicated and dynamic young families on board the C.H.A.S.E. for Life mission, this passionate, beautiful mother and community leader is the new face of CPR education. "I'm taking the dated images of CPR instruction, updating it with animation, making it user friendly and giving it the facelift it deserves," Boyle says. "I know we can get all parents to realize how important it is to know how to do CPR. If a person retains only 20 percent of what they learned in a CPR class, they have an 80 percent chance of saving their child's life."
