SisterMatch is a peer-to-peer support opportunity for women living with heart disease
Are you a woman heart patient look for support – someone like you, who is on the same journey to live well with heart disease?
If so, then WomenHeart and SisterMatch can help!
SisterMatch is a peer-to-peer support opportunity for women living with heart disease.
After being diagnosed with heart disease, many women experience feelings of isolation and depression. Being able to talk to someone "who's been there" can make a difference in emotional recovery.
Through SisterMatch, women connect one-on-one with a WomenHeart Champion volunteer who can provide needed support over the phone, in person, or via email, at a time convenient to both parties.
Talking with someone like you, who has had similar experiences, can provide support and encouragement. Through this peer connection, you will learn how to deal with new thoughts and feelings in ways that written information, cardiac rehabilitation, and other recovery services may not achieve, adding to your sense of hope, well-being and healing.
The match process centers on connecting participants with the WomenHeart Champion who best fits the responses provided in the SisterMatch questionnaire. WomenHeart Champion are women heart patient volunteers trained through WomenHeart's Science & Leadership Symposium to provide peer support to other women living with heart disease.
To be matched with a WomenHeart Champion SisterMatch, complete the SisterMatch questionnaire at www.womenheart.org.
