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.
