My story

[p]On 1st May last year I took a phone call that no wife wants to receive. My husband of 8 years, partner of 16 years and father of my two children, had been involved in an accident at work. I was told there was an explosion and he was going to be transferred to Southmead hospital. So many thoughts went through my mind but my priority was to get to him. [/p][p]I can honestly say that what I saw was not what I expected. My husband's face was covered with a white face mask, not unlike the one I had in our bathroom cabinet for cosmetic purposes! When it came off, although he was burned, it was not that bad. [/p][p]He was seen to by an amazing set of people and got the care and attention he needed quickly. [/p][p]As a result of the amazing attention received, only a week on the results to his face were amazing and now 8 months on, you would never know my husband has received burns to his face. [/p][p]As a thank you, I am running my first ever half marathon and all monies raised will go to both the South Western Ambulance Service and the Southmead Hospital Charity - who together provided the great care to my husband. Having only ever ran as far as 10K this will be quite a challenge for me. [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read this and your donation is greatly appreciated x [/p]
