On 15th August 2019 it will be 5 years since I had a heart operation and was fitted with an LVAD and we will be having a charity BBQ to celebrate my LVAD birthday, with all money raised going to Harefield hospital. Due to numbers, not everyone can be invited, but you can still donate.

I went in for a heart by-pass but unfortunately my heart was so weak I had to have the LVAD fitted, which saved my life.

The LVAD helps the heart pump blood round the body and has allowed me to continue my life as normal as possible.

Even if you do not know me please still donate to this cause. They helped save my life and one day it could be one of your loved ones lives they are saving. David Long
