My Story



8 years ago I started to feel short of breath when walking around the home, to the letterbox and even around the yard, I thought jeez I am unfit for 35 I need to start exercising!
A month passed and I was getting worse I was even short of breath sitting down while doing nothing, that’s when I thought this isn’t normal, so I made a doctor’s appointment for the following day. That night I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t lie down as I was struggling, I was so short of breath and puffed out I even contemplated phoning for an ambulance but thought if its nothing how silly of me so I waited for the doctors appointment and to my surprise the doctor phoned for an ambulance!

I was diagnosed with Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) this is a condition in which the heart's ability to pump blood is decreased because the heart's main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, is enlarged and weakened. The recovery period was long and took a few years to feel normal again, I will always remain on heart medication but that’s ok as I know that keeps my heart going right!

I'm inspired by the work of Heart Foundation and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in My Marathon 2019. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Heart Foundation, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
