I'm Raising Awareness for heart disease in young people

This October, I’ll be raising awareness for heart disease in young people.

 

Last year, I was donating plasma and the nurse that was conducting the pre-screening noticed an abnormality in my blood, which meant I was denied from being able to donate and was required to get further testing done.

 

Those results then lead to being diagnosed with Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs).  PVCs is a type of abnormal heartbeat, and if left untreated can increase the risk of developing an irregular heart rhythm or weakening of the heart muscle.

 

I was put on a twice-daily medication to treat the PVCs but this was unsuccessful. As my medication wasn’t working, my symptoms progressively got worse. I was eventually told running upstairs was too much for my heart, giving no option but to undergo a cardiac ablation surgery in October of last year. 

This October marks one year since surgery, and I am happy to say I have now been cleared of all PVCs and never felt better! To support this milestone I am extremely grateful to have Shape Australia, my friends and my family joining me in a marathon of 42.2 kilometres over the month of October to raise funds and awareness for heart disease in young people. 

 

I’ve signed up for MyMarathon to support the thousands of people living with heart disease in Australia, because I am one of the lucky ones who gets to continue an active lifestyle! Please join me in supporting Aussie hearts by making a donation on my page to this important cause.

 

Together we can win the race against heart disease.
