CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk and new Raising Awareness page 

Thank you to all myheart members who took part in the 16th annual CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk. We are so grateful and really do appreciate you joining us to raise awareness of CRY and to remember and in support of those living with a condition. 


We are only able to hold CRY events thanks to the incredible support of CRY’s volunteers. If you would be interested in kindly volunteering at CRY events or raising awareness of CRY's work, we now have a Raising Awareness page on the myheart website. Please see here

The shock of cardiac arrest when you’re young and fit

When your heart suddenly stops pumping blood around your body, the consequences can be life-changing, if not fatal. It’s somehow especially shocking when the cardiac arrest happens to someone who is young and fit – like the Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen. Here myheart member, Meg Fozzard, draws on her own experiences, and those of a fellow cardiac-arrest survivor, Tim Butt, as she discusses why some young people’s hearts stop, and why it seems to affect sportspeople more. Read the full story here.

myheart annual newsletter

The myheart annual newsletter has been sent to all members who subscribed to receive this. The newsletter is a round-up of myheart news and activities from 2021. You can read a digital copy of the newsletter here.

Thank you to everyone who kindly contributed. If you would like to feature in the next issue, I would be grateful if you could send in any stories or articles about your experiences of living with a heart condition, with photos, if possible, to myheart@c-r-y.org.uk.

We are always looking for opportunities to increase awareness of CRY's myheart network. Having our information displayed in GP surgeries and hospital waiting rooms makes a real difference to alerting young people to the support services we offer. If you would consider taking any myheart leaflets and newsletters with you to your next hospital appointment, please let us know and we will arrange for copies to be sent to you.

You can subscribe to myheart mailings here.

Private myheart Facebook group
 

myheart has a Facebook group where members (aged 18 and over) can connect and share experiences with other people who have been diagnosed with a cardiac condition often ‘out of the blue’.

So many people who contact CRY/myheart want to talk to others who are in similar circumstances to themselves. The group is a private community for members of the myheart network to share their feelings and experiences with others who have suffered a cardiac arrest, inherited a cardiac condition, have a congenital condition or found out that they have a cardiac condition after a sudden cardiac death in the family and be part of a network of support for one another. A place where we hope you will feel safe in the knowledge that you are not alone in your experience.

The group is private and can only be joined by invitation from myheart. The discussions within the group can only be seen by group members. Whilst myheart has access to the group as an administrator, the group is not actively moderated by myheart. The rules for the group can be found here, and are also available in the Facebook group page.

To join the myheart network and find out more about the private area of the Facebook group please visit www.myheart.org.uk/join-myheart.

If you are already a member of the myheart network and would like to join the myheart Facebook group, please email myheart@c-r-y.org.uk

You can also send in a query to us at myheart@c-r-y.org.uk and we will post it on your behalf if you choose to remain anonymous.

Best wishes
myheart team
