PPCM Fund Inc.
Is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by PPCM survivors dedicated to saving unsuspecting mothers and their families from Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. We spread awareness and do what we do in order to save lives and prevent unnecessary suffering. PPCM is a *preventable pregnancy induced heart failure; a relatively unknown yet deadly "perfect storm" surrounding new mothers.
We are on a mission to educate, implement systems, and spread awareness on a global level, all while furthering research & aid in the prevention of PPCM, Peripartum Cardiomyopathy.
Unfortunately, most we have encountered have not heard of PPCM; this includes the majority birthing & medical professionals we've encountered. A key part of our mission is to not only raise awareness, but also to raise the standards for screening, standard tests, & lab-work; with implementation both during and after pregnancy.
We strive to provide timely support to the families that have been adversely affected by PPCM,
in their time of need.
Under the header tab, "Content" > "Downloads" we have a Flyer available for FREE download.
Please share it with the world, or bring it to your next OBGYN visit!
