This tax time, donate to save these two brothers from a deadly heart disease

Help us progress this new treatment to stop this dangerous heart disease in its tracks

Everyday, Nikki Glover lives with the crippling fear that she may outlive her children. 

Nikki's two sons, Ayden and Nate were both diagnosed with a life-threatening heart disease called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy when they were just 9 years old. This heart disease causes the heart to enlarge and may lead to sudden cardiac death. 

"It took me about a week for it to really sink in, for it to really hit home," recalls Nikki. 

This cruel heart disease is the leading cause of cardiac death in children aged between 5 and 15. There is currently no treatment or cure for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. 

Since being diagnosed with the disease, Ayden and Nate have been riddled with numerous heart surgeries and a lifetime of heart medication. Between the two of them, they have had 12 operations in 15 years. 

And, its not over for them. 

What is this 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 save these brothers?

The next stage of this research breakthrough 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. We aim to reach this goal by June 30. Will you help us?

Your donations today will fast-track this research to clinical trials so these brothers and the lives of thousands of others can be saved. Please be part of this research and support us this tax time.
