My Story

If you've been following my blog at www.cyclingintothebin.com (unabashed plug), you know why we're here. I had a double stroke on the 24th November 2016, aged just 42. It took a year before we found out that it was from a DVT that passed through a hole in my heart, exacerbated by a tumour in my bowel. Just over two years on, I have had a tea strainer inserted into my heart to plug the hole, had 30cm of bowel chopped out and had six months of chemo. I'm alive and healthy, but I will never forget the fear and anxiety of an unexplained stroke. There is so much more we can learn about stroke, about its causes, and how to treat it. I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of the Stroke Foundation and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Run Melbourne 2019. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Stroke Foundation, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
