As part of Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s running team you will be helping people like Debbie to do more than survive with their condition.

Debbie’s Story

“It really was a lifeline for me, and I know they’ve helped so many others through dark times.”

Debbie had a stroke just after her 40th birthday. Doctors told her family she might not survive. But Debbie pulled through.

When she was able to leave hospital, Debbie wanted to get back to her usual self, but the reality was a struggled.

“I started feeling really anxious and depressed, but I kept my feelings to myself. I wanted everyone to think I was back to being the normal, smiley Debbie.

“Despite having my amazing family around me, I couldn’t help feeling increasingly isolated. I was too ashamed and embarrassed to tell them about my worries and how I was really feeling.

“I sat for a long time before picking up the phone to Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. I even hung up a few times before plucking up the courage to stay on the line.

“But when I did get through, the nurse was absolutely amazing. I felt like I could really open up and ask all the personal questions I needed to ask about my physical and mental health.

“It really was a lifeline for me, and I know they’ve helped so many others through dark times.”
By registering today and securing one of our coveted charity places, you can help more people like Debbie in their time of need. Run with us so that people across Scotland can live their life to the full.
