Despite all the challenges and hurdles, I still lead a normal life. The last few months have been amazing, not only have I enjoyed a well-deserved break but my fourth heart procedure has worked. Even though I haven't had an attack in months, and could still experience another, I'm excited to begin my new journey.
Last year the organisation CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young - which undertakes tremendous work in raising awareness of conditions that can lead to young sudden cardiac death screened 12,000 young people between the ages of 14 and 35. Of those, 40 young people who were considered "fit and healthy" were diagnosed with a cardiac condition that was potentially life threatening.
