 Join Alexander Jansons Fund Campaign 

 Alexander Jansons Fund was set up after the death of Alexander Jansons from myocarditis when he was 18 years old.  Myocarditis is a virus which attacks the heart and affects individuals of all ages but most frequently in the young. The fund has pledged a minimum of £80,000 per year to fund research and activities relating to myocarditis. With this research we will save lives in the future.  

 In 2018 Alexander Jansons Foundation merged with Cardiomyopathy UK and is now known as Alexander Jansons Fund. Money donated goes directly to a restricted fund specifically for the Alexander Jansons Fund within Cardiomyopathy UK . This means that donations can only be used for research and activities relating to myocarditis and not for any other purpose. This is a fantastic opportunity for us as we will now be able to offer an expert helpline nurse for people affected by myocarditis for as long as they need.  

Cardiomyopathy UK is the national charity for people affected by heart muscle disease cardiomyopathy to ensure that they can live longer and fuller lives (register number 1164263).  Myocarditis is a disease marked by inflammation and damage of the heart muscle wall and can lead to dilated cardiomyopathy. It is vital that the charity holds a special fund to help save and improve the lives of people affected by myocarditis.
