How "Rescue 911" saved my life. "ThankYou"
12 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

From: "Brandon Michael Keys" This show may well have saved my own life and prevented me from dying cased by the drugs they putt me on for my ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER. I love Rescue 911 and in debt-ed to William Shatner for the rest of my life. "Thankyou" Rescue 911 and to William Shatner. I also remember being on stretchers in the ambulances at the times I had my seizures. I also wore head braces along with being loaded on to the ambulances. At the different times I had one of 2 of my seizures and the one grand Mal seizure cased by the Ritalin that I was taking for my A.D.D. ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER. This show helped prepared my family for these emergencies "ThankYou" "Rescue 911" I am 23 years old now butt it happened over 12 or 13 years ago.
