My story

[p]Hi,[/p][p]I am raising money for the fantastic Hampshire-based charity Wessex Heartbeat. Every year, Wessex Heartbeat supports thousands of people who are undergoing life-saving cardiac and pulmonary surgery at Southampton General Hospital.[/p][p]In 2016 my Mum underwent open heart surgery at the hospital and thanks to the charity I was able to stay at the [url=]Heartbeat House[/url] for nearly two weeks. In that time I regularly visited my Mum as she underwent her many operations. I am immensely grateful to the charity for allowing myself and my close family to stay there for free.[/p][p]This is why I intend to run the London Marathon this year. My goal is to raise at least £5,000 to enable the charity to continue its life changing work, as well as supporting the amazing hospital staff. With the extra monies raised they will be able to help more people, and allow other families to benefit just as we did.[/p][p]Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the UK and it can affect anyone at any time. At the moment the charity is raising money to pay for the UK's first specialist [url=]3D cardiac software[/url]. Without access to this cutting edge technology it is currently extremely difficult to treat patients with serious cardiac problems, particularly babies born with congenital heart disease.[/p][p]Currently, surgeons have to outsource the 3-D printing of babies’ hearts to a company in Belgium. Each print costs: £1,500 and they only have one shot to get it right. So this puts a lot of strain on the surgeons and doctors who are just trying to help.[/p][p]Every contribution will make a difference, so please donate whatever you can.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p][br][/p][p]N.B. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p]
