Pt-Story-Photo2-May-Appeal-Carmen-full“I was fit and energetic, always on-the-go. I ate well and exercised. I never thought I would need The Alfred. But unknowingly I contracted a heart condition called idiopathic giant-cell myocarditis, which is caused by a virus. It took hold really quickly and it soon became clear I needed medical help. By the time I was rushed to The Alfred, my heart had swollen to three times its size. I literally had seconds to live. I couldn’t believe what was happening. I thought, ‘This just doesn’t happen to people like me’. The Alfred saved my life.”
