Young Assyrians dying from heart attacks!


Staff member
Since late 2018 and through Jan 2021 (around 2 years) I know of 6 young Assyrians that have died of sudden heart-attacks and I am hoping this thread can bring some awareness to this silent killer. I won’t mention their names but at least their other info:

-Nov 2018: 29 year old from Chicago
-Feb 2019: 28 year old from Modesto (married with a kid and his wife was pregnant with a second child at the time)
-April 2020: 34 year old married man from Toronto, with 3 kid
-May 2020: 42 year old married father of 2, from Toronto
-July 2020: 27 year old man from Toronto
-Jan 2021: 27 year old man (I believe from Chicago)

Notice how 4 of these happened during the Pandemic and I wonder, and wouldn’t be shocked to know it is related.

Sad and tragic and may they Rest In Peace. And hope this thread can bring more attention to this silent killer.
