Story

I was diagnosed with Ventricular Tachycardia back in 2008

During the period between 2008-2013 I'd had

  • 9 internal shocks from my ICD
  • 3 external cardioversions for VT
  • 1 cardioversion for VF
  • punctured heart
  • Emergency open heart surgery
  • 2 stents
  • ICD Implant
  • ICD removal
  • Blocked artery
  • Numerous episodes of VT

I'm the lucky one, some of our young people aren't so lucky, it's a tragedy for them and their families.

That's why I'm raising money for CRY ❤
