We want to hear from you! Sharing your story can help so many others to learn and know they are not alone as they go through their heart valve disease journey.
About The Campaign
The annual awareness day on February 22 aims to increase recognition of the specific risks and symptoms of heart valve disease, improve detection and treatment, and ultimately save lives. While heart valve disease can be disabling and deadly, available treatments can save lives, making education and awareness particularly important. On this day and throughout the year, the campaign partners—100+ non-profits, advocacy organizations, professional societies, foundations, and hospitals and heart centers—are helping to spread the word about valve disease.
