Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) #i #r #s #help


Our Services


The emotional impact of the sudden, seemingly inexplicable death of a young person on their family cannot be underestimated. CRY offers emotional and clinical support following a young sudden cardiac death.


Screening to identify young people at risk is cost-effective when conducted correctly – the conditions can be treated, securing a future for those identified. All young people should have the choice to be tested.


CRY’s research programme gives us unique access to general population-based data, enabling comparisons between athletes, ethnicities and gender. Better understanding of what is normal for young people, can better identify and treat those at risk.


Awareness not only helps identify those at risk, but also ensures correct clinical practice when treating a young person with an inherited cardiac condition.

CRY’s Vision

Preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and supporting affected families.

My story

Stephen and I had been together for 12 years. We had our ups and downs like most couples but we always stuck together and we were best friends. We finally tied the knot in October 2015. We were inseparable – in all of the years the most we had ever spent apart was 7 nights. I never thought I would be married at the age of 25 and widowed at the age of 27. I saw us being married for decades, neither of us ever contemplated the other one not being there, we always said we couldn’t live without each.

Cardiac Screening

CRY offers subsidised ECG and Echocardiogram screening to all young people between the ages of 14 & 35.
There is a simple way to diagnose most cardiac abnormalities. This is by having an ECG (electrocardiogram) test. Results should be read by a cardiologist. For extra clarity an Echocardiogram (ultrasound scan) can also be done.If there has been a young (under 35) sudden death in the family, the family is entitled to be screened on the NHS.
All of CRY’s public events are free to attend.
