PPCM Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by PPCM Survivors dedicated to saving unsuspecting mothers and their families from Peripartum Cardiomyopathy; a relatively unknown yet deadly heart disease surrounding pregnancy. Shockingly, we have found that big-name "Heart Associations" do NOT conduct research nor spread awareness regarding PPCM... We are on a mission to implement systems, spread awareness and further research & aid in the prevention of Peripartum Cardiomyopathy as well as provide support to the families that have been deeply affected as a result of PPCM. We want to reach as many people possible in order to save as many lives as possible!
No mother needs to die, no child needs to be motherless.
We want to know what causes Peripartum Cardiomyopathy on a molecular level. IPAC (Investigations of Pregnancy Associated Cardiomyopathy) case studies provide us with a leading-edge look into the underlying causes of PPCM and how to further prevent the disease. While the direct underlying cause is still unknown, there are ways to prevent full blown heart failure and mortality if caught in time. We are learning more and more everyday; with your generosity, we can help further the knowledge of trusted health care professionals to hopefully one day put to rest Peripartum Cardiomyopathy, not another mother, daughter, wife, partner.
We are heart sisters, we band together.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or simply spreading the word; THANK YOU, words are not enough. We couldn't accomplish our mission and reach the women we need to reach without the love and help from supporters like you...
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Please let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality and welcome newcomers with open arms. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you... We're excited to have you join our family.
