SisterMatch

Peer-to-Peer Support for Women Living with Heart Disease

Are you a female heart patient looking 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!

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, via the app, 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.

Take action now to get the support you need

SisterMatch is available via a mobile application. The matching process centers on connecting users with the WomenHeart Champion who best matches the responses in their profile. After completing a profile, you will have an opportunity to select specific WomenHeart Champions to be matched with, whether you base your decision on having a similar diagnosis, geographic location, age or more.  The app also provides information about Support Network meetings should you decide to seek support in a group setting, as well as provides other WomenHeart news and information.

To be matched with a WomenHeart Champion, download the app and create a user profile. You can find the app on the Apple and Google Play stores.

If you have questions or are unable to access mobile apps, please contact our Patient Support team at patientsupport@womenheart.org .
