Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Hughes family, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) now has a new van and the capacity to screen 50,000 more young people. Five years ago, Sue and David Hughes lost their 28 year old son, Daniel, to an undiagnosed heart condition. Since he passed away, the couple and their daughter, Kim, have raised more than £250,000 in his memory for CRY. These funds have already helped the charity screen more that 2,100 young people and potentially save the lives of 62 people who were referred for further testing following their initial screenings. Now, thanks to a donation of £25,000, CRY has a new mobile screening van in its fleet which is to be unveiled at an upcoming screening event in Derby.
