PPCM FUND INC.
Our mission is to save lives; fighting for the health of ALL Moms and Babies.
PPCM FUND INC. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by PPCM survivors dedicated to saving unsuspecting mothers and their families from the avoidable suffering associated with PPCM (Peripartum Cardiomyopathy).
PPCM is a preventable* pregnancy-induced heart failure generally caused by an internal buildup of fluid.
The BNP and NT-Pro BNP are specialized/screening blood tests that have the ability to catch pregnancy-related & induced heart failure (PPCM - Peripartum-Cardiomyopathy) early enough to help dramatically decrease maternal mortality in new mothers.
"The B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) test is a blood test that measures levels of a protein called BNP that is made by your heart and blood vessels. BNP levels are higher than normal when there is a potential health concern."

EARLY DIAGNOSIS SAVES LIVES
- Know your heart's EF%.
- Know your BNP number.
*In most cases PPCM is preventable if caught and/or diagnosed early enough.
The BNP or NT-pro BNP test(s), especially combined with a chest X-ray
& EKG/Echocardiogram can do much to provide early diagnosis, before & after delivery.
