SisterMatch

A Peer-to-Peer Support Opportunity 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, 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 matches the responses provided in the SisterMatch questionnaire. Prior to completing the questionnaire, we encourage you to browse through our list of WomenHeart Champions to see if any of their heart stories connect with you. While completing the questionnaire, you will have an opportunity to select specific WomenHeart Champions you’d like to be matched with, as well as other preferences you’d like us to consider when matching you.

To be matched with a WomenHeart Champion, complete the SisterMatch Questionnaire to embark on your journey of healing.
