“There’s that saying that that time heals all wounds. Well, it doesn’t. You just learn to live with them. If heart attacks can be prevented in any way, shape or form. It needs to be prevented.”

– Christine, Kade’s mum

Christine and Garry never imagined their son Kade would suffer a fatal heart attack so young
