“CHSS has been so vital to my recovery”

Every penny you raise will go towards helping someone in Scotland do more than survive when they return home from hospital with a chest, heart or stroke condition – you’ll help them really live.

You’ll be helping people like John who suffered a heart attack in April last year while on a bike ride with a friend.

Lifesaving is not a word John bandies about easily. But when he speaks of the support he received from our Advice Line after having a heart attack, it’s the one that comes readily to mind.

“What CHSS has done for me has been absolutely massive. It’s been incredible. Lifesaving is the word coming into my head, and it sounds over-dramatic, but CHSS has been so vital to my recovery.”

“When Tracey from the charity’s Advice Line first phoned me, it was perfect timing and a trigger just to open up and share my feelings. I was so desperate for support, and some of the things she gave me – coping mechanisms and therapy guides –I still use today.”

By fundraising with us, you’ll be helping fund our Advice Line so more people across Scotland can get the support they need right now.
