Mixed emotions' as memorial trust is launched
Posted: Sat, 09 Mar 2013
The father of a boy who collapsed and died while out jogging said the launch of a trust in his son's name was the "first sign of light" since his death.
14-year-old Joe Humphries was the victim of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) – the adult version of cot death.
His family created the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust to promote awareness of the condition in the city and county. Joe's parents, Steve and Angela, and sister, Lauren, launched the trust at an event at Joe's old school, De Lisle College, Loughborough, yesterday.
