In Case of Emergency: This Might Save Your Life.

Written by Melissa Kessler, MA, PCC

During the Affinity Group round table meeting I facilitated with business owners in January, one of the group members stepped out due to abdominal pain. An ambulance was called, and he was admitted to the hospital for an aneurysm. Tragically, Patrick later died after surgery. This newsletter is meant to honor his memory and share three very important lessons from his sudden and unexpected passing.

Lesson 1:

Do you know how to store emergency contacts and critical medical information (blood type, allergies, etc.) in your phone, so others can access it even if the phone is locked with a passcode or Touch ID?  Putting “ICE” next to your emergency contact is useless if others can’t access your phone when it’s locked. Please see the instructions below for your phone type. (Please note: You may need to have the latest software version on your phone.)

Lesson 2:

If you need to call someone’s emergency contact, be sure to call from their phone. Many people won’t answer their phone if the call is coming from an unfamiliar number.

Lesson 3:

I’m sure that when Patrick left his house the morning of our January Affinity Group meeting, he never imagined that it would be his last day on this earth. Never take anything for granted. Live each day as if it were your last, for one day it will be. Don’t put important things off until tomorrow because tomorrow may not come. Do the things you’ve always wanted to do NOW. Say the things you’ve always wanted to say and speak your truth NOW. May you live your best life each and every day starting NOW.

In Memoriam

Patrick Bosworth was a father, husband, business owner, friend to many, and valued member of our Affinity Group. He was taken much too soon and will be sorely missed by many people.
