We hate heart failure. That's why we're fighting to mend broken hearts.

Help us win the fight against heart failure

When you have a heart attack your heart will suffer damage that can never be repaired. In some people this can lead to heart failure, which in severe cases leaves you disabled and gasping for breath, with a life expectancy of less than five years.

Living with severe heart failure is a constant fight for life. Every year, thousands more families have to watch the people they love struggle with the distressing symptoms.

Until now, there has been no hope of a cure. No way to mend a broken heart. But with recent advances in regenerative medicine, repairing a damaged heart is a realistic goal.

Mending Broken Hearts is the most ambitious research programme we’ve ever carried out. We're at a critical stage in the UK's fight against heart failure – help us continue our vital work.
