Charity Registration No. SC018761

Story

Last year I agreed to take part in the Glasgow to Edinburgh cycle (mostly because my mate was nagging me to do it). I didn't own a bike but it sounded fun.

Then, early this year, my Mum had a stroke. She's been through a life changing experience and is battling through the other side. It has changed her life, my Dad's life (himself a heart attack survivor) and made me realise that you only get one shot at this.

Your donation will help further the research in these areas, lessen the risk for us all, and better support the survivors, people like my Mum and Dad.

Factoid: £200  - could fund training for a primary care nurse to deliver home-based specialist treatment for chronic lung disease
