"It's all in the genes." - Dr. Heather Ross

Our Mission

To make a meaningful impact on the treatment and long-term prognosis for heart failure patients (with a focus on inherited dilated cardiomyopathy) by raising awareness and funding for key current and emerging initiatives aimed at early diagnosis, improved treatment outcomes and, ultimately, finding a cure.

I was 41 years old when I was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. That appointment will forever be burned in my memory – it was the moment everything changed. I went to the hospital that day an exhausted mother of three and I left a heart failure patient.

After I received my diagnosis, it was important to me to be involved and to assist with any ongoing research initiatives. After an initial meeting with a genetics counsellor, I was approached by several research coordinators.

Heart failure is a type of heart disease that occurs when the heart is not able to pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body. 

"The human heartbeat is the first music that a person hears, and every child is born knowing the rhythm of their mother’s song."
