Peter Teale, a local man, lost his beautiful daughter aged 23 to SADS (sudden adult death syndrome) in September 2009. This kills at least 12 young adults between 14 and 35 per week in the UK. Zoe was a fitness instructor and competetive swimmer and died in her sleep of an undiagnosed heart condition. The family have raised considerable funds since her death and have organised a two day heart screening event at Villa Park, Doug Ellis Stand on May 28th and 29th.
As the family live in Cheslyn Hay they are trying to get grass root level sports clubs to attend. If you would like more details, please see the link below to a document that gives all the information. The screenings are free of charge and are paid for by the Zoe Teale Memorial fund at CRY (cardiac risk in the young).
