There is a big difference between a heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest, and Judy Mims wants you to know the difference. Sudden cardiac arrest means that you stop breathing, and you are likely to die without cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and shock treatment from a defibrillator. You can still have a pulse with a heart attack.

Mims suffered sudden cardiac arrest in the restroom at the Target store in Lodi on Nov. 16, 2008. She almost died at age 56, but she was revived by Lodi firefighters and American Medical Response ambulance workers.
