Phil Reece returns to The Great Manchester Run!

Case Study

Date: April 2019

Meet Phil Reece, aged 55 from Clayton le Woods, an advanced Heartbeat class member.

In May 2017 Phil took part in The Great Manchester 10k run, when something went wrong with the finishing line in sight. At 9.6k into the run Phil collapsed, luckily for Phil right in front of a paramedic. The paramedics performed CPR and used the defibrillator before rushing him to Manchester Royal hospital.

Phil was diagnosed with a bisuspid aortic valve and had to have surgery to place a new generation metal valve into his heart.

Phil spent the following 10 days in hospital and then returned home where his recovery began.

Phil said “I am very grateful to the paramedics that saved my life when I collapsed during the run. I was so lucky they acted so quickly. I was aware that I had a defective valve, however had no idea I was putting myself at risk by running in the event. With regards to the surgery, I am so grateful to the surgeon Mr Bilal and all the medical staff at the MRI for their care through to recovery.”

Phil was quickly on his feet when he returned home from hospital and started a 10-week rehabilitation course through the NHS. He then started his rehab journey with Heartbeat, firstly joining a class at Clayton Green where he started to build in confidence and become fit enough to move to Heartbeats advanced class at Heartbeat HQ based at PNE.

Phil said “I feel I have unfinished business with the Great Manchester 10k Run, so now I am fixed and feeling fit I will be taking part in 2019! I will be running in aid of Heartbeat. They have been fantastic in supporting me through my recovery, not only making me strong enough physically, but for giving me my confidence back. I can’t wait to cross that finishing line, this time I will get my medal!

Lisa Riding Heartbeat fundraiser said “On behalf of all us here at Heartbeat I would like to wish you well in the run this year! You will smash it! We are so grateful to you for supporting Heartbeat. Nobody deserves that medal more than you Phil! To sponsor Phil visit his JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/fundraising/phil-reece1″

Alan Turner’s Story

Case Study

Date: March 2019

This is Alan, a cheeky chappy from Liverpool AKA as Mr Happy from his students at the school where he works as a science technician.

In 2016 Alan aged just 42 suffered a huge heart attack. Alan was at work at the time lifting 10kg weights from one room to another when he thought he was suffering with indigestion. A prickling sensation then started in his arm and a pain in his jaw and back which made Alan realise this could be more serious than just indigestion. Later that day Alan went home and did some decorating, however the pain wasn’t easing so he took himself off to the hospital on the bus!

Royal Preston hospital assessed Alan and he was suffering a huge heart attack. He was later transferred to Blackpool Victoria Hospital where he had an operation to have a stent fitted.

Alan who is also battling with non-Hodgkinson Lymphoma is doing fantastic at his rehabilitation classes at Heartbeat.

Alan said “I started my rehabilitation journey with Heartbeat and initially left after six weeks to join a ‘normal’ gym, however I returned to Heartbeat in June last year. The support that you get from the instructors at Heartbeat is fantastic and unlike your standard gym.”

Alan attends his exercises classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Heartbeat, and he plays badminton twice a week. The changes he has made to his lifestyle have resulted in him losing a stone in weight. He enjoys exercising with Heartbeat knowing there are specialised instructors on standby if anything was to go wrong!

Lisa Riding Heartbeat fundraiser said “Keep doing what you’re doing Alan. You are a superstar and have had to deal with a lot over the past few years. The instructors love having you in their classes and it’s a real joy to hear just how you enjoy your classes. Heartbeat supports over 950 local people per week just like Alan and have been rehabilitating heart patients and those at risk for over 40 years.”

Kathleen Scargill’s Story

Case Study

Date: February 2019

Meet Kathleen, born and bred in Fulwood on her father’s farm. Kathleen now 75 years old has had to go through some very difficult times, having been widowed three times raising three children on her own all whilst working as a secretary to support her family. Kathleen has also battled with her health, suffering with severe back pain resulting in several back operations along with cancer of the kidney and bladder.

Kathleen joined Heartbeat in 2018 after suffering a heart attack. One late evening in July Kathleen began to feel unwell and had a strange sensation in arm. She rang her son and he insisted she call an ambulance. When the paramedics arrived, they took her to Lancaster hospital to have further checks. She was then transferred to Blackpool where she had an Angiogram and it was confirmed she had suffered a heart attack and would need a stent fitted.

Kathleen said, “I couldn’t actually believe I had suffered a heart attack, although I had felt strange, I wasn’t really in any pain, more of a discomfort.”

Once the stent had been fitted Kathleen started her rehabilitation firstly at the hospital, then with us here at Heartbeat. Attending classes on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.

Kathleen added, “I really enjoy my classes here at Heartbeat with my instructors Jackie and Rebecca. I like using the treadmill, rowing and the stepper and feel so safe and secure exercising with trained BACPR instructors”

Lisa Riding Heartbeat fundraiser said, “Kathleen is a truly amazing lady, a real inspiration to us all. I was blown away by just how much she has gone through and her commitment to attend her weekly classes whilst continuing to battle with ongoing heart investigations and on discovering another tumour in her bladder.

Heartbeat supports over 900 local people per week just like Kathleen and have been rehabilitating heart patients and those at risk for over 40 years.”
