CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young

CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young

Every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions. 

CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young

To reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD) CRY works with cardiologists and GPs to establish good practice and appropriate cardiac screening facilities. 

CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young

CRY funds medical research and has had many "firsts" in the scientific literature, including peer-reviewed articles in journals such as Circulation, The British Medical Journal and The Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young

CRY offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD, by putting them in touch with those who have the knowledge and experience to answer their questions. CRY provides information to explain what the coroner does; practical guidelines to help with NHS referrals; and advice on the procedures that follow a YSCD.

Raising Awareness

CRY also provides information and support for young people diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening cardiac condition; and publishes and distributes medical information written for the general public by leading cardiologists.  CRY funds fast track investigative, screening and referral services at the CRY Centre for Cardiac Pathology (at the Royal Brompton Hospital) and the CRY Centre for Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions and Sports Cardiology (at St George's Hospital, London).
