"I’m only 45. I can’t have had a heart attack,” were the first words out of Kirsty Cherry’s mouth as she was admitted to hospital at the end of August.

The self-employed Moneyrea-based events manager and PR professional, who also runs the Cherry Moon candle making business, was at home on a Friday morning eating breakfast when she started to experience back pain and what she thought was “awful heartburn”.
