The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation
ARVC is an inherited condition that causes the replacement of cardiac muscle with fibrous, fatty tissue. This causes the walls in the heart chamber to become thin and stretched, impacting how the blood is pumped around the body and causing abnormal heart rhythms which can lead to Sudden Cardiac Death.
ARVC can be found in one in 1,000 to 5,000 young adults - IF IT IS LOOKED FOR.
Sudden Cardiac Death is the leading cause of death in young athletes during sport and the majority of deaths occur with NO PRIOR SYMPTOMS or family history.
Every week in the UK, twelve apparently fit and healthy young people (aged 35 and under) die from previously undiagnosed heart conditions.
Tragedies can be prevented through cardiac screening. It is vital that young people who may be at risk are identified and treated.

The aims of The Daniel Wilkinson Foundation are to raise awareness of Sudden Cardiac Death in the young and to provide funding towards heart screening, defibrillators and CPR and defibrillator training primarily for grass-roots sporting teams.
