Family organise charity football match to raise funds and awareness for CRY

The family of a young man from Cheadle who died from an undiagnosed heart condition say they’re doing all they can to stop another family going through what they have.

Ben was a keen footballer and a Manchester City fan. It later emerged he had an undiagnosed heart condition which caused a tear in his aorta, a major artery.

Ben was predisposed to the condition, aortic dissection, which can be corrected with surgery.

This weekend the family have organised a charity football match for Cheadle Atlas – the team that Ben and Mike ran together.
