John Barrowman - fundraising in memory of Tom

John Barrowman

My page:

Tom Reid, who was a huge fan of John Barrowman's, died of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) in 2009, aged 19. Tom had met John at a book signing a while back.

Halina and Antony, Tom's mum and dad, e-mailed John to explain what had happened to Tom. He had been out with friends when he began to feel unwell, saying that his heart was beating very fast. Tom collapsed and, despite the best efforts of the emergency services and hospital staff, he could not be resuscitated.

After speaking to Halina and Antony (pictured), and sharing some of their memories of Tom, John has very kindly offered his support and has become a CRY Patron.

CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) is a national charity saving young lives and supporting those affected by young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). Please donate to help our vital work.
