Support research that will end heart disease
Heart disease is the leading cause of death across the United States. It's a disease that is a threat to you, your neighbor and those closest to you. In fact, about 610,000 people die of heart disease in the US every year — that's 1 in every 4 deaths. petitie tekenenpetitie tekenen
Every year, Brigham and Women's Hospital creates remarkable advances in prevention and treatment of this disease. From developing the model for today's defibrillators to discovering that aspirin prevents heart attacks, the Brigham has made significant progress in improving lives.
But we've only scratched the surface of cardiovascular care. Right now, our doctors and researchers are spending hours in the lab and with patients to create breakthroughs that will save lives.
During American Heart Month, we hope you'll add your name to support those working at the Brigham so together we can turn ideas into prevention, and treatment into cures — beating heart disease once and for all.
