Richard’s story…

I suffered a sub arachnoid hemorrhage at the end of 2011 and I was taken to the ICU of the Royal Victoria Hospital.  Although I wasn’t conscious to witness it, I have been told by my family (and my girlfriend at the time) that the attention of staff, the machines in the ICU, and the round the clock care I received, was absolutely amazing!  Everyone is in agreement that the standard of care I received in this critical phase, was so important in how events unfolded during my recovery.  I have been fortunate enough to have had a brilliant recovery!  I would go so far as to say that my life post this incident, is better than life before it!  I’m in better shape mentally, physically, and that worried girlfriend has gone on to become to my wife!

When we got married, we wanted to give a little back so we made a donation, on behalf of our guests, to raise funds and awareness of this fantastic cause, without which, I may be in a different situation to the positive one I am at present.
