My story

[p]In a New Year moment of madness, Clive and I have been crazy enough to sign up for a really mad 5-day hot and hilly 400km cycling challenge from Mumbai to Goa. We are covering all costs ourselves, but will be raising money for The Tom Clabburn and Claire Prosser Memorial Fund which was launched in December, 2014.[/p][p]It succeeds the Tom Clabburn Fund which was set-up in 2008 by Tom’s parents, Claire Prosser and Paul Clabburn, and his sister, Ellen. The fund supports the registered charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).[/p][p]Tom was the same age as our daughter, and died on October 5, 2007, aged 14. He was one of the 12 young people aged 14-34 who die each week in the UK from an undiagnosed heart condition, according to [url=http://www.c-r-y.org.uk/]CRY[/url].[/p][p]Tom’s mum, Claire, was a great friend and an incredibly talented and inspirational person. She died from a heart condition on December 1, 2014 at the age of 54.[/p][p]Claire believed passionately that young people should be able to attend free screenings that could identify undiagnosed heart conditions and she campaigned tirelessly to raise both funds and awareness for CRY.[/p][p] While 80% of the young people who die have no prior symptoms, cardiac testing can identify those at risk in the vast majority of cases.The primary aim of Tom and Claire’s Fund is therefore to raise money so that young people can benefit from free heart testing by CRY. Since 2008, more than £160,000 has been raised and around 2,500 young people have been tested.[/p][p]The fund also raises awareness of the risk of young cardiac death and has contributed to CRY’s medical research programme.[/p][p]CRY’s statistics suggest:[/p][p] [i] One in every 300[/i] of the young people that CRY tests – and as of July, 2017, it has carried out more than 130,000 tests – will be identified with a potentially life threatening condition.[/p][p] [i] One in every 100[/i] will have a condition that is less serious but could cause problems in later life.[/p][p] Although screening can’t yet identify all those at risk, in Italy, where screening is mandatory for all young people engaged in organised sport, [i]the incidence of young sudden cardiac death has been reduced by 89%.[/i][/p]
