My name is Kieran. I have had two lives.
I was born with a heart defect called Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) I had open heart surgery (aged 3), Endocarditus (7), Heart attack (13), Mini strokes (21), Defibrillator fitted (36), heart transplant (38)

My second life has now lasted 8 healthy years thanks to a heart transplant in July 2009. I decided to donate my heart for British Heart Foundation funded research. I recently visited my old heart to say hello.

My story was recently published on BHF’s Blog. This is approximately a 20 minute read so get a cup of tea and a few custard creams and enjoy the ride. Click here
