If you are between the ages of 12 and 35 Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) can help you.
We understand that being young and suddenly finding that you need to be treated for a heart condition is not easy. CRY’s myheart network provides personalised help, support, and information to individuals between the ages of 12 and 35 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening cardiac condition. myheart is a support system for individuals to help develop effective coping strategies and reduce social isolation. The network was developed in response to feedback from young people who found that support groups available were not effective in helping them deal with issues such as fitting of ICDs, pacemakers and undergoing ablation surgery.
