On the 12th April 2014, Harry collapsed at home whilst watching TV with his dad Mario , he never regained consciousness and passed away in hospital that night. Tests revealed that Harry had suffered an 'aortic dissection' - a rupturing of the largest artery in the human body. There were no prior warning signs, no indication that Harry was unwell and that something so tragic and devastating could possibly happen to our 17 year old son who appeared to be fit and healthy.
Since then we as a family , have been on a journey to understand why and how this could happen to someone so young, so full of life and with so much still to do. Sadly we can't bring Harry back, but what we have learnt since losing Harry is that what happened to us as a family isn’t as rare as you might think. Every week in the UK 12 young people aged between 14 and 35 die suddenly of an undetected heart condition , yes12 every week- quite unthinkable isn’t it ?
Like Harry for many of these young people there are no warning signs, no chance to have a different outcome because like Harry, these young people haven’t been screened. So with the help of CRY ( Cardiac Risk in the Young) we aim to change that , our aim is to screen 1000 young people locally each year at a cost of £35,000 ( each screening costs £35). With your help we hope to be able to achieve this. These screenings can potentially save lives by identifying life threatening heart conditions and by offering lifesaving treatment.
