My story

[p] Dan passed away in his sleep 3 years ago due to an undiagnosed heart defect aged just 28. [/p][p] In Dan’s memory, our fundraising activity will see me and 29 others cycle 408 miles including 30,500 feet of elevation (higher than Mount Everest) from Lands End to Bignall End in just 4 days beginning on 22 August 2018. Our total aim is to raise £15,000 where all money raised goes to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY). [/p][p] Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. The heart defects can be picked up with screening programmes. The UK government does not currently fund free heart screening due to the pressures the NHS is under. [/p][p] Since CRY formation in 1995, it has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death. Since Dan’s parents started fundraising for Dan’s screening programme 2 years ago they have screened 996 young people, 32 of those have been referred for further investigation and there are more screening days being arranged all the time.[/p][p] CRY free screening sessions for 14-35 years olds which is entirely funded by charity fundraising. (Check the website if you would like to sign up for a free screening [url=https://testmyheart.org.uk/][u]https://testmyheart.org.uk/[/u][/url])[/p][p] Thank you so much for all of your support.[/p][p] Lou [/p]
