Bob Keers, Mullumbimby

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.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
