After growing poorly I rang an ambulance which arrived within ten minutes. They treated me for slight chest pain and took me to Byron Hospital emergency. I was taken straight in – 15 minutes later I had a heart attack. The quick response of the medical staff there saved my life.
I was taken to Tweed Hospital that night and then on to Gold Coast University Hospital where I received two stents to the valves in my heart. Both hospital staff told me that the medical staff at Byron had done everything in the process perfectly to give me my second chance.
My family and I are going to present the hospital with a large hand crafted angel made of clear quartz to keep in emergency as a guardian angel for everyone. Thank you again Byron Hospital.
