4th February, 2017
Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) was very kindly invited to hold a stand at ‘GOSH ICD Family day’, an annual event, organised by The Great Ormond Street Hospital at Institute of Child Health in London on Saturday, 4th February, 2017. Kanika Bhateja, CRY’s myheart coordinator attended the event.
The event was attended by young pacemaker and ICD patients who go to Great Ormond Street hospital and their families who attended the event. The event – with a combination of workshops, discussions, speeches, trainings, and games – lets the patients and their families meet each other and provide useful information, an enjoyable experience, and even a new friendship! Various charitable organisations including CRY were invited to hold a stand at the event. This gave the attendees at the event an opportunity to speak to representatives of these charities and the services and support they offer for ICD and pacemaker patients and their families.
Thank you to Great Ormond Street Hospital for giving us the opportunity to raise awareness of myheart at this event!
