Nail technician thanks heart charity for saving her mum's life
A NAIL technician is raising money for a charity that helped to save her mum’s life.
Danielle Sanders, aged 27, will be collecting for the British Heart Foundation at a Christmas craft fair at the Masonic Hall in Kingsway, Widnes, on November 18, from 11am to 4pm.
She will be donating money by selling false nails.
It is exactly a year since her 49-year-old mum, Gaynor, suffered a massive heart attack.
Danielle said: “It happened suddenly late at night. She had been gardening at home.
“She works as a barmaid and had always been dead active.”
Her mum had stents fitted through keyhole surgery and has now made a good recovery.
When she came out of hospital, the BHF charity offered her advice and support.
Danielle, from Warrington, who has three sisters and a step brother, said: “She has changed her lifestyle completely.
“She never went to the gym befoer and now goes five times a week.
“She has given up smoking and drinking and only eats healthy food.
“She will be on medication for the rest of her life but this charity has definitely saved her life.
“She has had to give up work but this have given her a wake up call.”
Self-employed Danielle, who lives with her partner, Aaron, aged 33, and two-year-old daughter, Lexie, designs her own false nails.
She will be donating money from every purchase to BHF and she will also have a charity collection tin on her stall.
