Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

By Ballyclare High School on 18 November, 2019

This is CRY’S raising awareness week and as a school we feel very strongly about the lack of opportunities for our young people to be screened ahead of time to prevent a sudden death.

Every week at least 12 young people, apparently fit and healthy young people, die of undiagnosed heart conditions.

In our eyes just one is too many and we are particularly aware due to the death of one of our own pupils.

We urge you to make your voices loud and clear to the government when the opportunity arises, to give us the opportunities nearby to test.
