The Cardiomyopathy Association
Cardiomyopathy is an inherited heart muscle disease that affects people of all ages, including babies. It is the main cause of sudden death in people aged under 35 but when found and appropriately treated most people can live a full life. When people are first diagnosed they can feel anxious, isolated and confused. The Cardiomyopathy Association provides information and support to help them understand the condition and how to live successfully with it.
We provide information booklets, a helpline, a cardiomyopathy support nurse, information days, support groups and a network of affected volunteers who provide support to others on the phone and by email. We also hold medical conferences for doctors and nurses to spread best practice in the treatment of the condition and screening for family relatives.
Help us to fight cardiomyopathy.
