36 Hour Broadcast Marathon
hosted by Anushka Arora in support of Cardiac Risk in the Young
On March 26-27, Sunrise radio presenter Anushka Arora broadcast live for 36-hours in a determined bid to raise funds and awareness of Cardiac Risk in the Young across the British Asian community.
The 36-hour broadcasting marathon featured music, ‘shout outs’, live interviews (with doctors, young people whose lives have been saved by screening as well as those who have suffered a bereavement) and regular reminders of why it is so important to support CRY and help to raise funds for its ongoing mission in preventing sudden cardiac death in young people.
Arjun who has been a support and now Ambassador for CRY following the sudden death of his wife, Natasha, who tragically died from a previously undiagnosed heart condition in September 2018, aged just 30, joined Anushka at 7pm on Friday for a ‘take over hour’ to help raise awareness of these undiscriminating conditions and the impact they have.
CRY supporter Dr Vanessa Sandhu spoke to Shabnam Sahi from Sunrise Radio about her sister Dr Natasha Coomaraswamy (née Sandhu) and the impact of her sudden death in 2018 and the impact this had on her and her family.
CRY’s Consultant Cardiologist, Professor Sanjay Sharma, spoke about his career, how he got started with CRY, and the importance of cardiac screening for young people.
Former CRY Research Fellow and now myheart consultant Cardiologist spoke about her experience with CRY and her ongoing work with the Charity
(CRY’s myheart network provides personalised help, support, and information to individuals who have been diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening inherited or congenital cardiac condition.)
