[p]This page has been set up to honour the memory of our son and brother, Ben Birch who died on the 22nd May 2013 of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (S.A.D.S).[/p][p]Undiagnosed heart conditions claim at least 12 young people every week in the UK and our chosen charity, Cardiac Risk in the Young, (CRY) fights to raise awareness, support bereaved families and promote heart screening, ECG testing programmes and medical research into S.A.D.S.[/p][p]Ben was 29 years old and was taken from us suddenly. There were no warning signs and we hope that raising any amount of money to help prevent other familes from suffering the loss we have suffered will be a great way to remember him.[/p]
