Since the CRY Screening Programme was first launched, over 275,000 young people have been tested.
A Coventry mum whose teenage daughter died of a sudden cardiac arrest is encouraging young people to get their heart checked.
Karen Bury has been working with the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) to host heart screenings for 14- to 35-year-olds.
An event this weekend (12 August) took place is in memory of her daughter Ella Bury.
Karen Bury said: “It’s important to hold these events and for young people to get their hearts screened, because ultimately I don’t want another family to suffer the way we have after we lost Ella.”
