Cardiac Risk In The Young

Registered Charity Number 1050845

Every week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed cardiac conditions. Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) aims to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD) by working with cardiologists and family doctors to establish good practice and appropriate screening facilities to promote and protect the cardiac health of our young. By supporting CRY you will help save young lives from these potentially fatal cardiac conditions.

CRY has many ambitious projects to enable it to provide the support and research to help save young lives. Its programme of activities strives to prevent these tragedies through:

- Our National Screening Programme

- Funding medical research into young sudden cardiac death

- Developing the CRY Centre for Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions and Sports Cardiology

- Raising awareness of the risk of undetected cardiac conditions in young people

CRY also supports young people diagnosed with life-threatening cardiac conditions through:

- the myheart Network

and those affected by young sudden cardiac death by:

- Offering a fast-track expert cardiac pathology service through the CRY Centre for Cardiac Pathology

- Providing a Bereavement Support Service to help those who have suffered a loss

- Providing information and literature free of charge
