Jackie’s big-hearted story
"I suffered a cardiac arrest 14 hours after my planned C-section. Unfortunately, because I did not fit the classic heart attack patient stereotype my symptoms were not as easily recognised and I went into cardiac arrest.
"Lucky for me I was in hospital and a wonderful team were able to save my life by inserting five stents into my left anterior descending artery.
"Two years on I’ve had some setbacks, but I’m here to see my son grow up and will always be thankful for the amazing team that saved my life."
You can make a difference in the fight against heart disease and support people like Jackie.
