Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD).
CRY's Vision - Preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and supporting affected families. Cardiac Risk in the Young offers dedicated bereavement support to support families after the tragedy of a young sudden cardiac death of a person aged 35 or under.
CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research.
CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds specialist referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.
