Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my personal Run for Life Fundraising page. I will be participating in this year’s Run for Life event on May 28th. I am raising funds in support of the purchase of a new recumbent bike at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. The new bike will be used to test and detect possible ischemia in the heart. The patients will be able to have an ECG Machine monitoring as well as the sonographer will be able to acquire images, all while on the bike. This means that patients do not have to travel to Victoria to have this test and an essential addition to the Heart Health Program at NRGH.
This is very important to me due to my own heart issues. When I was 21 a fall created a tear in my aorta. It was detected by CT scan but to get it repaired I had to go through a 2 hour transfer from hospital to hospital. It was a nightmare for me, my family and friends not knowing what was going to happen. I've had to take trips to diagnose heart issues as well and they are agonizing and stressful and the last thing you want when you need to know what's wrong is a delay. Thank you for supporting me and this great cause. Any and all pledges are welcome, even if you can only spare a dollar. Thank you thank you thank you.
