My story

<p>As a Patron of Cardiac Risk in the Young I have had the humbling opportunity to meet the remarkable young people who have been diagnosed with a life threatening cardiac condition and also the many families who have been affected through the tragedy of losing loved ones through sudden cardiac death. CRY aims to prevent young sudden cardiac death and more support to the charity will result in more screening to find heart abnormalities which otherwise may go unnoticed.&nbsp; I will be walking the CRY mile with Laura John.&nbsp; Laura was 4 years old when her father, David, died suddenly at work aged 32.&nbsp; When Laura&rsquo;s mother, Julie, was watching a Panorama Special about Sudden Death two years later, it was explained that most forms of sudden death are hereditary. This led to Julie fighting to ensure Laura and her sister, Danielle, were referred to an expert and tested. At the time, Laura was terrified and there wasn&rsquo;t anyone talk to who was going through the same thing.&nbsp; When Laura was 10 she was fitted with an ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) and it was fantastic, allowing Laura to do so much more.&nbsp; Danielle and Laura became founder members of CRY&rsquo;s Surgery Supporters Network and Laura and I hope that walking the mile together, we will raise the profile of the vital support needed to ensure that in the 15<sup>th</sup> Anniversary year of CRY&rsquo;s existence, you will donate to fund future screening for young people with undiagnosed life threatening cardiac conditions.</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p>
