Lizzie Jones is recognised with a Heart Hero award by the British Heart Foundation for raising awareness of hidden heart conditions – like the one which claimed her husband’s life.
For Danny Jones, playing rugby at the highest level took commitment. When he died from a hidden heart condition, Keighley Cougars lost a key player, Lizzie lost the husband she adored, and five-month-old twins Bobby and Phoebe lost their dad.
Now Lizzie is showing the same commitment in her determination to raise awareness and funds for research so that other families don’t suffer the same heartbreak.
Lizzie’s inspiring work in bringing defibrillators to Rugby League clubs has been recognised with our Fighting Spirit Award.
