after serious illness From The Westmorland Gazette To recognise Ellie's determination, the university has awarded her its Development Trust Prize for coach outlet locations xx outstanding final year student in sport and health sciences.
The former Casterton and Sedbergh School pupil broke her foot while running the Prague Marathon back in May 2016 and, unbeknown to her, bone marrow leaked into her blood and triggered the clotting. Months later, when Ellie began suffering from shortness of breath, chest pains and fatigue, she assumed it was a chest infection, although her coach outlet stores fremont indiana worried housemates were not convinced. "I thought I would get my exams out of coach outlet atlanta map the way and get coach outlet tuscola il it sorted afterwards," said Ellie, whose mum owns Dinky Shoes, in Kendal. However, after sitting two out of three exams she collapsed on campus and was admitted to a leading respiratory hospital in Leicester, where she spent ten days being given acute care including oxygen, stomach injections and scans that left her "radioactive" for two days. Ellie's fitness deteriorated from playing hockey three or four times a week, to "huffing and puffing" if she walked as little as five metres. "Because I'm quite fit I didn't really notice what was wrong at first," she said. "That's how it got so bad, because my body was able to cope with low oxygen." Ellie's parents travelled to her bedside from Kirkby Lonsdale, having been alerted by a paramedic as the student was too short of breath to make the phone call herself. Friends rallied round, too, driving her to lectures and tutorials when she was well enough to return to her studies yet still suffering extreme fatigue. Ellie who describes herself as "a bit of a strong minded person" and "quite competitive" managed to catch up on four weeks' missed work in a week, and was determined to graduate alongside her friends in July. "I think it's pushed me a little bit further than I thought I could be pushed," she said.
"Somehow I've managed to pull it out of the bag alongside everything else." She now hopes her experiences will benefit her chosen future career of coaching or school teaching. In the meantime she is working at Kirkby Lonsdale's Royal Hotel and a gap year beckons, with a trip to New Zealand or Australia in January, and a trek to Everest Base Camp in September 2018.
