Three ECG scanners for our town


Cole family launched a massive fundraising appeal after a rare heart

condition caused the tragic death of their teenage son and they have now

been able to buy the town three electrocardiogram scanners.


10 years after the death of 14-year-old Jeremy Cole, his mum Jenny is

fighting to prevent more sudden deaths from cardiomyopathy – the silent

killer that causes shocking deaths of young people without warning



is Jenny Cole presenting one of the machines to Dave Dowsett, senior nurse

at the General Hospital.


Cole family has worked with the support of Cardiac Risk in the Young to

raise awareness of cardiomyopathy and other heart conditions that can

cause sudden death.
