My story

[p]So a little bit about me…[/p][p]My name is Sally, I’m 30 and have three beautiful children Finn 8, Darcy 5, Edie 2 and the biggest kid of all my fiancé Ryan.[/p][p]I live a very normal day to day life as a full time mum and self employed hairdresser.   We're also in the middle of very slowly doing up our house. Nothing out of the ordinary there! So the reason for wanting to raise money and most of all awareness, because one night can change everything and you never think it's going to happen to you.[/p][p]This summer on a very normal evening after dinner happily sitting on the sofa I had a seizure out of the blue resulting in being diagnosed with Brugada syndrome ( adult sudden death syndrome)  I spent 10 days in hospital wired up to a monitor 24hrs a day before having an S-ICD fitted. I am one of the lucky ones to still be here, but thanks to the ever on going research that C-R-Y have already put so much into their research and into diagnosing such rare heart conditions that without their knowledge, I for one, might not have had such a quick diagnosis and have received the necessary treatment to carry on leading a normal life. Thanks to their fantastic research, the procedures that are in place allow me to live in safety. For those that haven't been so fortunate, C-R-Y supports the families affected by their loss. I can't imagine how difficult that must be. Having been faced with a pretty close encounter I can say I struggle with the thoughts of what could have been, but luckily not the reality. As we wait for genetic testing, I pray to God I never do.[/p][p]Cardiac Risk in the Young aims to reduce the incidence of young sudden cardiac death through, awareness, support, screening and research. They rely on fundraising and donations.[/p][p]So not knowing how I could get involved - I saw lots of marathons, bike rides, walks etc... and then I saw the C-R-Y Raising Awareness week, 18th- 26th November. Sounding more like it... oh hang on... The C-R-Y Great Cake Bake!!  Yes! Now your talking.[/p][p]As a massive cake eater and baker I felt this would be a perfect way to start my fundraising...  what could be better than making cakes, eating cakes and raising money?![/p]
