The mother of a 26-year old who died of sudden arrhythmia death syndrome has campaigned to raise over £7,000 to get 200 youngsters screened for heart defects.
Her son, Pardeep Nagra, died in 2008. He was a fit and healthy youngster with no previous heart complications.
We think sports clubs and schools should give all children and young adults the opportunity to have an ECG. If kids were screened early while still at school they could be looked after and monitored throughout their lives. It's only a simple test which could benefit so many families and save them from this heartbreak.
The screening took place in Wolverhampton yesterday (Saturday February 23) and today.
