Kevan hosted a drop-in event in Parliament to raise awareness about Cardiac Risk in the Young, which is a charity that works to prevent young sudden cardiac deaths by raising awareness, encouraging screening and supporting research, and supporting affected families. He is photographed with Alison Cox, the founder of CRY at the event.
In the UK, 12 young people die every week from an undiagnosed cardiac condition. Every young person must have the opportunity to have their hearts tested.
Further information about CRY is available on their website here.
Kevan has also written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to ask him to reconsider the role of screening to help prevent the sudden cardiac death in the young.
Kevan’s full letter is available below.
