My Story

This October, I am joining forces with the Heart Foundation to help fight the single biggest killer of Australians - heart disease.

As part of My Marathon, I will have 31 days to complete a 42.2km marathon.

For this campaign, my primary goal is awareness. It always is. I hope to use this platform and my voice to remind you all that the best way to look after you heart is with a healthy lifestyle.

In my early 20's, on two separate occasions, I was diagnosed with multiple blood clots in my lungs - or pulmonary emboli, a circulatory system related form of cardiovascular disease. Years on from my health complications, I feel a responsibility to share my story and connect with others - to give those around me a sense of awareness and hope for future wellness.

For those of you who would like to support further, you can by making a donation. Did you know that for just $42 the Heart Foundation can help one researcher isolate and understand blood cells in order to prevent dangerous blood clots?

If through my voice and efforts I can help stop one other Australian from experiencing heart related illness, then my job here is done.
