The fan wrote: “I am running for the BHF [British Heart Foundation] 今年. It would be an honour to add your dad’s name to my ‘in memory of’ リスト.

I am writing these names on my arm as the inspiration to keep me going.

It is my first marathon after only having a baby last year it’s going to be a tough race but so worth it for the work the British Heart Foundation do…

Gemma was moved by the kind words and added: “And now I’m crying.… My dad was called David Atkinson. Thank you so much.

The ex-Emmerdale star spoke about her dad’s death on Steph’s Packed Lunch earlier this year.

彼女は言いました: “It was a huge shock for my older sister Nina and I to lose our dad when he was so young.

He was fit and healthy and strong and he was the last person you’d expect to collapse with a heart problem.

Doctors said that they thought the cause was stress related. 当時の, he was very fit and healthy, didn’t smoke and drank occasionally.

He managed a company and was working a lot and travelling all over the world.

彼女は続けた: “He’d had chest pains he thought was indigestion, so took heartburn tablets and carried on.

“今振り返って, and thanks to my work with the British Heart Foundation, these were classic warning signs that something was wrong.

If he had gone to the doctors perhaps he could have been investigated and they could have helped him in time.
