Story

Meet Mike Chivers. The best damn friend anyone could wish for, a doting husband, a loving father and a fantastic godfather to my 2 children.

On 30th March of this year, Mike was working overtime as a lorry driver. At about 8:30 in the morning, whilst driving down the M5, Mike suffered a heart attack. Amazingly, Mike had the presence for mind to pull into Sedgemore services where he called the emergency services. His heroics not only saved his life but the lives of other motorists travelling that morning.

After some time in hospital, Mike received surgery to repair his heart with 4 stents.

The tests reviled the left side of his heart was working at 25% of its full potential. At this point Mike was no longer able to drive HGV's, doing the job he loves and providing for his family.

This is where Yeovil Heartbeat came in. With rehabilitation Mike regained enough heart function to pass strict testing to get back on the road. It is this testing that I am raising funds for, as the machine is too expensive to keep at Yeovil Hospital, forcing patients to travel many miles to other, larger hospitals and the vital rehab that got Mike back driving, supporting his family and increased his time with us.

In support of Yeovil Heartbeat Charity, I will be competing in the Dorset Half Marathon (16.1 Miles!!) on December 1st, running along the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lulworth Cove, a tough trail run devised by Endurance Life.

Please show your support by donating to this wonderful and utterly deserving charity based at Yeovil Hospital.

Thank you

Alan Prosser
