We’re so pleased to announce our Marathon runner for 2020 – Jo Bryan.

Jo is a passionate about fundraising for LHM, read her story here…

“Having had a son, Matthew, in 2009 who sadly passed away at 12 days old with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Little Hearts Matter has always been close to mine and my family’s hearts. Knowing there is a team always available when you need them is so reassuring to all their members.

Matthew was born at St Thomas’ to be treated at the Evelina and running down the embankment being able to see the hospital where he was born across the river will give me the extra push I need to finish

I worked as a radiographer at Guys hospital so not only have I x-rayed many children affected by congenital cardiac conditions but also worked in paediatric cath lab helping to diagnose and treat them too, so seeing Guys tower when running will give me an extra focus as to why I’m doing this (not that I think I’ll need it, as Matthew will be more than enough)”

Jo’s extended family and friends are fantastic supporters of LHM too – her husband Ralph has completed RideLondon four times, alongside the London to Brighton cycle too. Her extended family and friends are all wonderful supporters of LHM too and we’re so grateful for all of their amazing support.

We’re so excited to have Jo on board as part of Team LHM and can’t wait to see all of her wonderful ideas come to fruition!

    "Niamh's not feeling 100% today, I asked her if she'd be more comfortable in pyjamas than Jigzy but bless her heart she said "I like to wear this top because it reminds me of the special people like doctors and nurses and Little Hearts who all make me feel better when I don't feel good, so when I wear Jigzy I always smile and it makes me feel better. "Hooray for Jigzy 🥰 xxx"

    And hooray for children living with half a working heart today, just like Niamh here.
