Michael Brindley

Michael was born with a series of congenital heart defects and underwent full corrective surgery at the age of five. Never requiring heart medication, he lived a full and active life. His only restrictions were sports related, no football or rugby. Michael loved all sports, especially basketball which he was cleared to play. He was followed by a cardiology team and underwent two cardiac catheterization procedures 11 years post surgery where everything was found to be normal and healthy. Four months later Michael had a stress ECG before leaving for summer camp. On his fourth day of camp, after playing basketball Michael suffered sudden cardiac death at the age of 16.
