Mending Broken Hearts Appeal
our Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, we're funding ground-breaking
research that could 'mend broken hearts' in as little as ten years'
At the moment when someone suffers a heart attack, their heart muscle is
permanently damaged, making the heart less able to
pump blood around the body. Many people who survive a heart attack
have a reduced quality of life because they
develop heart failure.
Impact of heart failure
Within five years many more people in the UK will
be living with heart failure, which is a progressive,
debilitating condition. For someone with heart failure,
normal everyday tasks such as having a shower or bath, doing
the shopping or simply playing with the children takes
enormous energy and leaves
them breathless and exhausted.
Hope lives in our research
We hope to fund more research like this so we
can come up with ways to mend the broken
hearts of people with heart failure:
