Donate to stop this dangerous heart disease in its tracks 

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the leading cause of cardiac death in children aged between 5 and 15, and there is currently no treatment or cure for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. 

“There are tens of thousands of Australians who have no idea they have this disease. If we could deliver a treatment and a way to reverse the damage to their hearts, this could save many lives and be life-changing.” - Professor Livia Hool

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 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?
