I suffered a type B Aortic Dissection back in December. This condition is often misdiagnosed in A&E with patients paying the ultimate price with their life. Myself and Chris will be walking the Thames Path Challenge on 9th Sept, all 22Km of it and Chris will be running the London Marathon in April, all in aid of the fabulous charity Heart Research UK. This charity is extremely supportive of Aortic Dissection Awareness, funding the ThinkAorta.org (google it) campaign and ring fencing funds specifically for Aortic Dissection Masterclasses, these Masterclasses educate and raise awareness of the diagnosis of AD to medical professionals. Please help us in out quest to raise as much as we can. If you fancy joining Team Aorta on the walk, please do let me know. Lots of love, Clare and Chris xx

Fundraising for Heart Research UK
For over 50 years, Heart Research UK has funded pioneering research into the prevention, treatment and cure of heart disease. Many things that we now take for granted, such as heart valves, angioplasty would not have been developed without our help.
