Im not usually very detailed/open about the rollercoaster 🎢 which Matt and I have found ourselves strapped up in over the last 3 1/2 years... We obviously confide our inner most fears in our closest friends and family. Rarely do we publicly speak out and ask for help.
But recently something changed; Matt suffered a stroke.
It was following this part of the transplant journey that we found ourselves on our knees praying for the heart which Matt will inevitably need. 💕
Like so many others, 4 years ago, Matt was diagnosed with Heart failure at the age of 26. Whilst supporting Matt, I had to come to terms with the fact that Matt had just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, one which we were both told, has one life saving treatment.
Can you imagine, being told you weren’t going to live beyond the 8 years any other treatment could give you?
If not, can you imagine knowing that without a heart, the person you love will die.
There just is no sugar coating it or saying it will be fine, because it won’t. Without more people making their wishes known, the likelihood of getting a heart proportionally out numbers the amount of people in need.
I’m not pretending things are okay. Unless people speak out, to their families today, things will not change.
