I was the very lucky and fortunate recipient of a new heart back in 2012. I had been diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy at the beginning of 2011 which then led to Advanced Heart Failure, requiring me to need a new heart.
I have since been able to live a happy and fulfilling life- being able to work, travel and socialise once again.
This is all thanks to the generosity of my donor and their family. Without them, I would not be here today.
I am taking part in the HBF 12km Walk to honor my donor and to celebrate this amazing new gift of life that they have given me 💙
I am also fundraising for the Heart and Lung Transplant Foundation of W.A to help support other patients who are currently suffering from chronic heart and/or lung diseases and who may be needing to navigate the difficult and emotional journey to and through transplantation.
