My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]I'm raising money for Chain of Hope, who I became involved with when I worked at Harefield Hospital's cardiothoracic intensive care unit. They [span=-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469);]provide children suffering from life-threatening heart diseases with treatment to which they do not have access. They do this by developing cardiac facilities in developing countries and teach and train local medical professionals. Chain of Hope provides cardiac care by sending medical teams abroad to treat children and set up training programmes for local surgeons and medical staff and by bringing children to the UK for open and closed heart operations as an interim measure.[/span][/p][p]I've never run this far, and I'm unlikely to ever do so again, so thank you in advance for adding to my motivation for dragging myself round 26 miles. It's a great charity, that does life-saving work for children around the world with heart diseases, and I'm proud to be running for them.[/p][p][/p][p]Thanks guys[/p][p][/p][p]Tom x[/p]
