Strength in Strangers: A true story of heartbreak, hope and courage

Written by Lauren Britton

From honeymoon to heart transplant.

One week after their wedding, on a remote honeymoon island, Lauren was told her husband Andrew had suffered six heart attacks and had hours to live. The local medical centre lacked the equipment to keep him alive and there was no plane to a specialist hospital for several days.

This is the inspirational and emotional true story of a normal young couple and their life torn apart by a near fatal heart affecting virus and a wife’s struggle to save her husband’s life.
An account of the incredible journey to return him home safely, the terrifying wait in hospitals where few spoke English, seven weeks in Bangkok on life support and intensive care, the selfless acts of strangers, and the frightening realisation that previously fit and healthy Andrew would need an urgent heart transplant.

This is a story of love, hope and courage against all odds.

A story of friends and family, incredible medical staff, the strength found in strangers and the ultimate gift of a second chance.
