Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a deadly heart condition that affects 1,000 Americans a day, yet many of us don't know much about it. Susan Ford Bales, daughter of President Gerrald Ford and Mrs. Betty Ford, is a SCA survivor herself. Since February is American Heart Month, she's partnering with the nonprofit organization Starting Hearts, founded in 2010 by fellow survivor Lynn Blake, to launch the Save More Lives Challenge.

To tell us more about their work and the meaningful difference this challenge can make, Susan and Lynn are joining the RTM hosts via Skype.
