I am a cardiothoracic surgeon working at the Lancashire cardiac centre (LCC). In the few years I have completed a number of charities challenges and raised thousands of pounds for various charities, this year I am raising funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) - one of the pioneering cardiovascular research organisation- by cycling from Moscow to St Petersburg in September 2022; averaging 100 km a day over 5 days a mix of easy and challenging rides . Heart disease kills one in three people and the LCC is dedicated to treating patients from Lancashire and Cumbria with life threatening cardiac conditions. Innovative surgical treatments and research are supported by the BHF to enable us to offer our patients the best and newest therapies. Please be generous with your support.
