Donate to stop this dangerous heart disease in its tracks 

Support research into Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - the life-threatening disease that is the leading cause of cardiac death in children aged between 5 and 15.

Perth brothers, Ayden and Nate, were diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy when they were just 9 years old. Since then, they have been riddled with numerous heart surgeries and a lifetime of heart medication.

There is currently no treatment or cure for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

The research breakthrough into hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Professor Livia Hool from the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute and her team from Western Australia have made a potential breakthrough discovery in the treatment of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. By targeting a calcium channel in the heart with medication, it could potentially both prevent and reverse the damage of the inherited heart disease which causes the heart to become dangerously large.

How can you help?

The next stage of this research is to take it to clinical trials. If proven effective, it could potentially save the lives of these boys and the lives of thousands of people around the world who suffer from this disease – but right now have no idea they are living with the condition.

It will take at least $312,000 to take the research breakthrough into clinical trials. Will you help us?
