Heart attack survivor turned grateful patient, Gary Meyers, knows all too well the importance of vital life-saving equipment at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney.

Gary’s life changed on the afternoon of December 16, 2018 when he had a heart attack and found himself coming to at St Vincent’s “with all these electrodes on my body. And I remember thinking this is it, this is time to say goodbye’.”

It wasn’t.

So a revived and refreshed Gary Meyers with a new lease on life spent many days in the cardiac rehab unit getting stronger. At that point he turned his mind to fundraising for the Hospital and “all these fantastic people” who supported him on his journey to full health.

Gary noted the necessary items in shorty supply or needing replacement in the cardiac rehab unit including items such as resuscitators and paper cups just to name a few, so Gary got to work.

There were many many walks, from the City To Surf to the world famous trek of the El Camino in Spain, walking with his wife the 130 km from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela and smaller ones in between.

Gary has walked the walk and raised funds and awareness for St Vincent’s for over a year now and we are so thankful for his support. It is grateful patients like Gary that make all the difference so thank you Gary from the bottom of our hearts.

Gary has a team walking from Lighthouse2Lighthouse this September to raise funds for St Vincent’s. You can support Gary by clicking here.
