ABOUT 74 youths with rheumatic heart disease (RHD) from across the country celebrated World Heart Day at the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort today.

Resort general manager Russell Blaik said his team was proud to host the annual celebration and acknowledged them for displaying strength and character despite the disease.

Cameron Yee, a former RHD patient and advocate for treatment, encouraged the youths to continue getting their monthly injections and medication.

More from this event will be detailed in tomorrow’s edition of The Fiji Times.
