HAVING recovered from a dangerous bleed on the brain, a Skenfrith resident decided to raise funds for the unit in Cardiff University Hospital where she was treated and Dixton Surgery.
Kath Jasper asked friends celebrating her birthday to help raise funds rather than buying presents, which raised an amazing £1,100.
She is pictured below presenting cheques for £800 to Cardiff University Hospital and for £300 to Dixton Surgery.
On a tour of the Neurology Unit, Kath learnt that research into this condition of a bleed in the brain, which is known as subarachnoid haemorrhage, has only been set up for five years and the problem cannot be ‘clipped’ because the source is not known,.
Her fundraising will make a significant difference to finding out more and saving more lives.
