Cheshire and Merseyside support group

A support group for families affected by cardiomyopathy in the Wirral and Chester area has been extended to cover Merseyside.

The group is run by university student Jenny Rees, who was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy as a baby, and her mum Julie. (pictured front)
