Rad - Diane Rostron

A boy with the biggest smile.

Radwan’s Story

“A parent will only ever be in one of three places: in front of you to cheer you on, behind you to have your back, or next to you so you are not walking alone” — S Turner

Rad underwent cardiac screening when he was 16 having been signed to Tottenham Hotspur. The purpose of the screening is to detect silent cardiac problems. An ECG demonstrated a potentially fatal problem. Neither Rad nor his parents were advised that the ECG was grossly abnormal. Some months later, whilst playing in a professional match, he suffered a cardiac arrest. He was deprived of oxygen for 16 minutes, leading to severe brain damage.
