How We Fight

With WomenHeart, No Woman Fights Heart Failure Alone.
We can all be empowered to be our own greatest advocates.

Meet 20WomenHeart Champions answering the most-asked Heart Failure questions as they work to fight the stigma surrounding Heart Failure. And hear in-depth stories from three of them about their lives with Heart Failure.

Women wear many hats – as mothers, grandmothers, wives, aunts, daughters and caregivers – we tend to put others’ needs above our own, and often dismiss our symptoms or blame ourselves for our diagnosis. As women with Heart Failure, we often face delays in getting diagnosed and seeking care. But there is no shame in a Heart Failure diagnosis. And with WomenHeart, no woman faces that diagnosis alone.

How We Fight has reached more than 8 million women and counting – thank you for watching!

Watch the videos to hear from these inspiring women, and watch this Facebook Live to learn more about Living an Empowered Life with Heart Failure.
