It was Karen’s turn first
Karen knew something was wrong when she started to feel pressure in her chest, nausea, cramps and a headache. She made her way to Prince of Wales Hospital and says that “No stone was left unturned to find out what was wrong with me.”
Just months later, it was Paul’s turn. An afternoon of surfing ended at Prince of Wales Hospital, with Paul in the capable hands of the Hospital’s cardiac team.
Now both Karen and Paul have returned to family life but will not forget the incredible kindness and care they received at the cardiac unit.
It is estimated that 430,000 Australians will experience a heart attack at some point in their lives
