Why The British Heart Foundation?
This year our raffle is to raise money for the British heart foundation which raise funds for ground breaking research for heart and circulatory conditions. Sadly many peoples lives are cut far too early due heart and circulatory disease. But many have been saved by the amazing research and new developments in medicine. Including our very own Richard Dayman who had a mechanical heart valve installed which has kept him alive to this day.
In April 1988 Rich had been feeling unwell for a number of weeks and the doctors at the time said he had flu but he didn’t seem to be getting any better. Then after a visit from the emergency doctor they wanted to send him in for more tests. This is when it was found that Rich had an infection in his main aortic heart valve and needed major heart surgery. So Rich was rushed in for an emergency open heart procedure. At the time pig valves were used but due to how much the infection had eaten away this was not possible. So a mechanical valve was used. At this time not many people had had these fitted but one person had lived with it for seven years. So they knew it would last that long but after that who knew.
At the time of the surgery Rich & wife, Sharon, were 4 weeks away from expecting a baby so it was an extremely busy and stressful time. But that being all said Rich is still here today to tell the story and his mechanical heart valve has been going 35 years. If it wasn’t for research from the British heart foundation then we wouldn’t have these advances in medicine and Rich would not be here today. If it hadn't been for research into procedures such as this then he would not be here today. So we want to do our bit and raise so money to help.
