Remembering Adam Pearminehere To find out more about Cardiac Risk in the Young and screening opportunities for 14-35 year-olds, visit the CRY website
We at Millwall, are pleased to support the work of CRY and make young people more aware of this life-threatening condition.
Adam's family are keen that youngsters with a close association to the club Adam loved should be the first to benefit from the screening funded in his memory.
The Memorial Fund setup in Adam's name, has now raised sufficient funds to pay for a screening event for about 80 young people that will take place in the Lions Centre before the Reading match on 1st February.
Although thankfully his condition was not fatal you will remember recently that former Millwall youth player Tobi Alabi, had to give up playing at the age of 20.
CRY say that 'every week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people die of undiagnosed heart conditions'.
Its purposes are to raise awareness of the condition, to research and to facilitate specialist screening of youngsters (14 - 35) to identify any problems at an early stage.
When Adam died his family were put in touch with a Charity called CRY, which stands for Cardiac Risk In The Young.
He was 26 years old, seemingly in perfect health and had no history of illness, not least of any heart problem.
In June 2010 Lions fan Adam Pearmine, died suddenly of a condition known as Dilated Cardiomyopathy.
