Father’s Day is particularly important to people like Anthony Anstice, who without advances in medical research might not be here to share his special day with his two young daughters – Jessica (13) and Yasmin (6). Anthony has suffered from heart disease since the age of two and says: “British Heart Foundation research has helped save so many lives. Make Father’s Day a day to remember this year by funding essential heart research, saving friends and family from the pain of losing a loved one. The thought of me not being here for my children this Father’s Day is unthinkable”.
