Max, Michelle and Terry, who feature in our BBC Lifeline Appeal, all know the heartbreak of heart and circulatory diseases.
Their lives have been affected by heart diseases, stroke and vascular dementia. Together, these conditions make up some of the world’s biggest killers.
With your help, we fund research into life saving cures and treatments to beat these conditions so families can live longer, better lives. We look at the full picture as these conditions are connected. So when you support us, your money is working harder to protect the people closest to you.
