Nurse’s Work For Charity On Upward Curve 2009: Nurse Bath

Nurse’s work for charity on upward curve

A nurse from Bath plans to trek more than 13,000ft up a South American landmark to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation.
Emma Holcombe, of Weston, plans to hold a fundraising event later this month in the hope she will raise £3,000 for the challenge to ascend Machu Picchu in Peru. The 25-year-old, who works at the Royal United Hospital, is in the third and final year of her nursing training. She said the cause was important to her because she has cared for a 33-year-old woman suffering from a rare heart condition. Martina Chant, of Midsomer Norton, who is a regular visitor to the RUH, suffers from congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS). She is one of the oldest people in the UK with the disease, a disorder which sees people suffer from respiratory arrest during sleep. Emma said the money would help people like Martina and improve their quality of life.
“This charity is especially close to my own heart and I hope that the money raised will help the quality and quantity of Martina’s life as well as others.”
