Story

So I have chosen Medway hospital as my chairty. I will be fundraising for 3 wards in particular. 

My first chosen ward is Intensive care unit- saved my sisters life nearly 6 years ago when she had sepsis, just when we thought we was loosing her they kept her going and supported us during the period. I would like to give something back to say thank you, my sisters story is below with a link.

My second chose ward is Phoenix Ward (where my sister is a HCA)  is dedicated to vascular treatment. The team deals with blood clots and arterial blockages, that are usually in the limbs and chest, in people aged 40 and over. The team replace blocked arteries with high-tech plastic tubing. 

Last but not least The Oliver Fisher Special Baby Care Trust is a unit with 32 cots, including eight intensive care cots. It cares for babies born prematurely, or who are sick and need the intensive care that only a highly specialised facility, skilled staff and sophisticated equipment can provide to ensure their survival.

When I applied for the VLM19 I was training last year however now have put on 3 stone and starting from scratch! With a lot of weight to shift and a lot of runs to get in including half marathons. 

I hope you guys can support me with some words of encouragement and a donation (no matter how big or small)
