Back in September last year, the Joyce family tragically lost their fit and healthy 15-year-old son, Kieran to Sudden Cardiac Death.
A post on his memorial page, Cardiac Risk in the Young- Kieran Joyce Memorial, says:
“Losing Kieran has turned our lives upside down and we do not want another local family to experience the pain of losing their son or daughter, when it could be prevented if detected with a heart screening.
“We have started a memorial fund in Kieran’s name with CRY. (Cardiac Risk in the Young)
“For every £5,000 we raise we can book a screening team to come to Hereford for a day and screen 100 of our young adults.”
So far the family’s amazing work has raised enough money to screen 100 young people for heart problems in October 2020. But they’re not stopping there.
The family had plans to complete the 5 bridge walk in London on 28th June to raise more funds for the cause, but due to current travel restrictions they will now be completing a walk of the 5 bridges in #Hereford instead, which will cover a similar distance.
Please support the wonderful work of this family, absolutely dedicated to saving young lives with early detection and treatment of heart conditions.
