Today is the 5th anniversary of my Heart Transplant.


It is with much thanks and love that I spend the

day with Family and loved ones. All the ongoing

love, support, laughter, and understanding is

appreciated beyond measure...


I send a prayer and thoughts however to my donors family

who are today mourning the loss of their loved one who

so courageously gave ME the gift of life... RIP.


Be thankful followers and Carpe Diem !...

Life is a short, fragile, and precious thing...


Happy New Year.

About Matt.

My name's Matt. I was born with a congenital heart defect which hampered me in my youth, and sadly became a terminal conditon recently, and beyond the (amazing) care of the BRI-Bristol Heart team.

In 2008, my condition deteriorated, to a point I was happy to see Xmas 2008. I had prepared to die.

Then in January 2009, a late night phone call from QEH-Hospital Birmingham changed my world, when they offered me a heart transplant, if I could get there pronto!!

6 months on, after a rocky start, I am still alive, thanks to them!

Read on to see how my new life is taking shape, and my adventures to date!....
