Running a Marathon for the first time. In 1979, I was born with a hole in my heart and Tracheo Oesophageal Fistula (TOF).
Tracheoesophageal fistulaย is an abnormal connection in one or more places between the esophagus (the tube that leads from the throat to the stomach) and the trachea (the tube that leads from the throat to the windpipe and lungs). Normally, the esophagus and the trachea are two separate tubes that are not connected, in my case it was joined to my left lung. I was operated on when I was a day old and spent the first five months of my life in hospital, only leaving on Christmas Eve 1979. Furthermore at Easter in 1984, I choked and flooded my left lung, as a result my lung collapsed and I was rushed to hospital, where I was operated on to remove half of the damaged lung, I subsequently spent two weeks in Intensive Care and a further two months having physiotherapy in Wythenshawe Hospital. I am raising money for www.tofs.orgย
