Covid 19 has put people with heart and circulatory diseases at greater risk than ever, the impact of the pandemic has forced us to cut our research in half, and 60 years of progress is at stake.

We are counting on the willpower of chocoholics like you because even before the pandemic, research into the worlds biggest killers was far too underfunded. Now the situation is worse.

There are so many things we need to change. The fact there is no effective treatment for vascular dementia. The fact that women are twice as likely to have a heart attack misdiagnosed. That there's no cure for heart failure. That we still cant save every child born with congenital heart disease, or give every victim of stroke the best chance of recovery.

It all sounds daunting and it is. But here's the good news - research works, and so does fundraising. When we fund research properly and put our trust in science, breakthroughs follow.

Every step forward we've made has been thanks to a huge collective effort and that's what taking part in Dechox is all about.
