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 really make a difference in mental and emotional recovery. 

Through Sister Match, women connect one-on-one with a WomenHeart Champion Heart Sister 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 and add to your sense of hope, well-being and healing. 

The match process centers on connecting participants with the Heart Sister who best fits the responses provided in the Sister Match questionnaire.  All Heart Sisters are WomenHeart Champion volunteers trained through WomenHeart's Science & Leadership Symposium at Mayo Clinic.

 To be matched with a Heart Sister, fill out the Sister Match questionnaire.
