The history of Heritage 2 Health is here, but I’m not one to ever speak for others or put words in mouths so read the accounts of members and participants here. Otherwise here is my personal account of what H2H is “about”.
My stroke happened in November 2010 and after a total of three months on wards at two separate hospitals in and out of Central London came three months at The Wolfson Neurorehabilitation Centre in Wimbledon. It was two months into my three month residence that Theresa stopped by, introduced herself to a number of the patients at the time and informed us all about the work H2H does.
I explain to family and friends alike that “H2H organises events and generally spreads the message that though an individual may be overcoming a life-altering issue, accomplishing these events portrays one of achievement”.
I’m not one to fabricate all of the good work H2H does or what it personally means to me, but I can categorically say that I don’t know what or where I’d be without it. The work it does is clear to see, from walking up to the summit of Leith Hill to simply learning how to interact with “people in the same boat”, Heritage 2 Health is an organisation that gives me that extra “zip” to my life that may n0rmally have been lacking.
