Barbara 'Jean' Lowe decided to support LHCH Charity recently by taking part in the Delamere 10K Challenge!
Jean said "Last September I underwent Open Heart Surgery at Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital to replace a dangerously narrowing Aortic Valve. I had become very breathless & wheezy & my diagnosis was quite shocking at the time.
This operation has extended my life & helped me get back to what I love doing running & exercise (within moderation). The care I received during my stay in hospital was amazing and I want to give thanks and show my support to their charity which raises funds for equipment, research & much more.
This is my return to taking part in events post op and training and completing this is by no means gonna be easy. I have a great support team so run, jog or walk I will complete this distance!".
Jean completed her challenge and raised a fantastic £390 for LHCH - Thank you Jean!
