Who We Are

Mario and Debbie Dubois, from Manchester, have led a major screening drive to aid early detection of heart conditions in young people. Inspired by the life of their son Harry, who passed away from an undiagnosed heart condition when he was 17 years old, the couple created ‘1000 Hearts for Harry’, working with ‘Cardiac Risk in the Young’ to screen 1000 young people. They have worked tirelessly to raise awareness of early detection and the fact that 12 young people die each week in the UK as a result of heart problems they were not aware of. Mario and Debbie have raised over £87,000 for their screening days and have screened almost 2,000 young people.
