Millwall event for CRY

31 January 2014

Screening at the New Den

A special health screening event will take place before this weekend's game at Millwall.

In June 2010, Millwall fan Adam Pearmine died suddenly of a condition known as Dilated Cardiomyopathy. He was 26 years old, seemingly in perfect health and had no history of illness, not least of any heart problem. When Adam died his family, who live in the Reading area, were put in touch with a Charity called CRY, which stands for Cardiac Risk In The Young. Its purposes are to raise awareness of the condition, to research and to facilitate specialist screening of youngsters (14 - 34) to identify any problems at an early stage. 

The Memorial Fund in Adam's name has now raised sufficient funds to pay for a screening event for about 80 young people that will take place in the Lions Centre before our match at the New Den on Saturday.

The Royals would like to join Millwall in supporting the work of CRY and make young people more aware of this life-threatening condition.

To find out more about Cardiac Risk in the Young and screening opportunities for 14-35 year-olds, visit the CRY website http://www.c-r-y.org.uk.

A similar screening near Reading is hopefully set to take place in the near future.
