CRY (CARDIAC RISK IN THE YOUNG) SCREENING SESSION
CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) are a charity that work to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). 12 young people die each week from undiagnosed heart conditions. CRY supports those diagnosed with potentially life threatening cardiac conditions as well as supporting families affected by YSCD. CRY works to promote heart screening programmes and funds medical work in this area, publishing medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public.
Alongside family and friends of Richard Brember Havant RFC, a local rugby club, have been raising donations to the Tribute to Richard Brember Fund in order to fund screening sessions primarily for young people. Richard, 32, was fit and active, having played many years of rugby at Havant and Farnham Rugby Football Club, however died due to an undiagnosed heart condition while out cycling. A fantastic amount of money has been raised to fund screening sessions with Richard’s Dad, Gordon, wanting one of those sessions to be held at the University with a focus on student sport.
