British Heart Foundation

We power research into heart disease to beat the UK’s single biggest killer

Story

Thanks for visiting my page. I'm raising money for the British Heart Foundation's research and I'd be so grateful for your support.

When my father had a heart attack and bypass last year, information from BHF both online and in the hospital in a range of handy pocket-sized booklets proved to be essential in understanding what had happened and what the future might hold.

Not only that, but there is information and support for going forward, rebuilding lives and maintaining health.

You can find that information here: https://www.bhf.org.uk/heart-health

The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist, but every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target. Thanks!
