I’m donating my second innings for Australian hearts.

Your 50th birthday is always a major milestone, but it’s one that I will remember for a very different reason. 

At 4:30 am, I woke up in a cold sweat and had a real heavy chest.   

I thought I might be in a bit of trouble, so, I rang the doctor of the Gold Coast hotel I was staying in. He said, “Let’s get to the ambulance to be sure (we discover what’s going on).” 

So, off I went. At 6:30 in the morning I remember texting Andrea, my wife, to tell her what’s going on. 

By 8:30 am, they had to do a triple bypass. A week later, I was home. Then, the three months of recovery really began. 

I didn’t realise how tired, how short of breath I was before the operation. Looking back now, I think, “Wow!”, because I must have been pretty ill for a couple of years. Now, food tastes so good from quitting smoking; everything tastes really nice! 

To help me get back to living a full life, and to better manage my heart health, I started going to cardiac rehabilitation. I highly recommend it, it was fantastic! It just gave me a better understanding of how the heart works, and what you're going to do and how to prevent heart problems in the future. 

Now I’m here, 6 months down the track and ready to donate my second innings, not just for my heart health, but for Australian Hearts. 

Come on, join me Australia. Join my team! Let’s get active and get outdoors, whether that’s your backyard, local park or city streets. Let’s smash this fundraising target and help raise vital funds to support heart disease research.
