Recognize the symptoms

Knowing what to look for is the first step to helping yourself and others. Remember to LISTEN to your heart to recognize the symptoms. If you do notice symptoms in someone else, tell them to ask their doctor about an echocardiogram.

    Ken's story

    I was tired a lot. Couldn’t catch my breath. My doctor recognized my symptoms and realized it was heart valve disease. I got lucky. I tell everyone, “Don’t wait. Listen to your doctor.”

Roughly 25,000 people die from heart valve disease in the US each year, and yet 75% of Americans know little to nothing about it. We're determined to change those numbers, but we need your help.
