Joe’s memory lives on through heart screenings

By timesecholife on in All News, Featured News

A CAMPAIGN to fund heart screening sessions for young people has been hailed a major success.

The 18-month drive in memory of Joe Leyland has seen his family raise vital funds of more than £20,000 and awareness of cardiac arrest in the young.

The first heart-screening event funded by the campaign will take place in Cheadle on Saturday, June 16 – and it’s already fully booked.

Joe’s dad Ian, mum Maria, and sister, Charlotte – with help from the community – have raised more than £20,000 for the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

The heart screening event will take place at Painsley Catholic College, where Joe studied for his GCSE before his sudden death in 2016 from a rare heart condition, Mitochondrial Myopathy.
