York mum's anger that blood tests aren't carried out in schools
5:48am 26th May 2010
A York mum says there's not enough screening in schools and colleges.
Tania Sinclair's daughter died from a heart attack brought on by undiagnosed diabetes six months ago.
She says, Sam would have lived if she's been blood tested at an early age and the condition has been detected.
Tania's now calling for a change in a law to make blood tests compulsory at a young age. She's written to York Central MP, Hugh Bayley, who's taking her case to the Health Minister.
Tania and her family are doing the Great North Run in September to raise money for a diabetes charity in memory of their daughter.
