I used to faint every day until I got one of the world's first cardiac alert service dogs - ask me anything!
Hi, I'm Marty from the movie Adele and Everything After and I have vasovagal syncope, a heart condition that used to make me faint, without warning, at least once a day.
In 2007 I was paired with Adele, one of the world's first cardiac alert dogs. She was able to sense when I was about to faint and alert me so I could give my heart chance to recover. Within weeks of getting Adele I stopped fainting entirely.
My story is the subject of a new film, Adele and Everything After (adelemovie.com) which is out today on video-on-demand on all major platforms. Also commenting here will be the film's director, Melissa Dowler (u/dowlerthedirector) and Producer/DP Tom Dowler (u/long_haul_films)
Please check out our movie at adelemovie.com
EDIT: Thank you everyone for joining me today on reddit. It seems my time is up and I loved answering your questions. After a long day I am looking forward to playing with Adele and Hector then curling up with a good movie such as Adele and Everything After which is now available On Demand. Please visit adelemovie.com for more information.
Love, Marty, Adele and Hector
