Scones for SCAD 28 February 2017 Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, United Kingdom
Hosted by Beat SCAD

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD) can cause heart attack, heart failure, cardiac arrest and can be fatal. SCAD can happen to anyone but mainly affects young, healthy women with no risk factors for heart disease. There is no known cause and many patients are misdiagnosed, which can result in major damage to heart muscle and long term health consequences.

UK research into the causes and treatment of SCAD is being carried out by Dr David Adlam and Dr Abi Al-Hussaini at Glenfield Hospital / Leicester Cardiovascular Biomedical Research Unit. The research was initiated by SCAD patients desperately looking for answers about their condition - a condition which most were told by their doctors is so rare they will never meet another SCAD survivor. Fortunately, most of those doctors have been proved wrong and the SCAD community have come together via social media to support each other.

The Beat SCAD charity is also patient led and on Tuesday 28th February, co-founder and trustee chair, Rebecca Breslin will be hosting a 'Scones for SCAD' awareness and fundraising event at the UK 'Home of SCAD' Glenfield Hospital in Leicester.

Come and along to learn about SCAD, talk to people affected by this condition - and enjoy some scones and cakes while chatting. Healthy treats will be available too - got to look after that heart!!
