My dad underwent heart transplantation back in 2007, when I was only 7 months old and my brother was 3 years old. Harefield Hospital carried out the transplantation and took care of my dad in the months leading up to his transplant and for the many years after. My dad is still here today thanks to their expertise and dedication. Of course, this would not have been possible had the donor family not given my dad the gift of life - a very brave decision on their part. Now that I am 17, it is my turn to give something back. As such, I will be taking part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon in April 2024 and will be dedicating this run to Harefield Hospital, the donor family and my dad.

I hope you will support me in raising funds to help others receive their gift of life! Oscar Eagle
