Craig raised over £1,000 running the London Marathon this year for our local NHS Trust after the amazing work they did, providing critical care for Ruth when she developed double pneumonia and Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) after catching Covid in March 2020.
Extremely sick and with a low percentage of survival, Ruth entered the Conquest Hospital at a time where everyone was scared of what the Covid virus could do. Within hours, she was placed on a ventilator and treated with such amazing care and dedication, despite the fears the staff must have had at the time for their own safety. After two long weeks, Ruth was able to return home.
Without their clinical intervention, Ruth would not be here today. The Trust continues to support Ruth with her ongoing battle against Long Covid and all that it brings.
