Rebecca Shorrocks, 36, from London says: “I was diagnosed with an inherited heart condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy when I was 34.
“I’d been out for a run and started feeling breathless and dizzy. I began to feel very unwell and went to A&E. After a few tests I received my diagnosis and was told my condition could lead to a cardiac arrest.
“I was so lucky it was spotted early. I stayed in hospital for 11 days, during which time I had an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator fitted. Now, if my heart starts to beat in a dangerously fast rhythm, it will shock it back to a normal rhythm. It will save my life.”
