Helen Doyle was rushed to King’s College Hospital A&E from her local GP surgery in late October 2016. Helen, a keen runner, had been struggling to walk due to cramping in her legs but had assumed it was pulled muscles and ignored it. She went to the GP when it became nearly impossible for her to walk and her feet went numb. Doctors at King’s quickly found that the main arteries going to each of Helen’s legs were completely blocked with blood clots.
Getting better after an illness is a good reason to celebrate. One great way to show your appreciation is ask friends and family to donate to King’s College Hospital Charity rather than buying presents for a birthday, an anniversary or Christmas. You can even chose for your donations to go to the ward or department that cared for you.
