By donating $2 you can help eradicate the pregnancy-induced heart condition, Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM). Your gift to this non-profit organization can be tax-deductible and help save lives by funding data research, education, programs, and more.
It's supporters like you that help us change the world every day.
PPCM is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality in the U.S.
Reader donations are essential to our work, providing us with the stability and independence we need, so we can focus on showing the data and evidence we think everyone needs to know.
That ensures all have access to quality screening, diagnosis, and treatment for PPCM. Offering patient support, treatment assistance, and even childcare, and transportation services.
To support everyone, no matter where they are in their pregnancy-induced heart failure journey. Providing a safe place to share, grieve, support, and find strength forward.
PPCM may not be as rare as we think—but it doesn't have to be a death sentence.
LetsTalkPPCM loves partnering with other organizations, and businesses who are willing to sponsor, and those who can donate diapers, baby wipes, strollers, car seats, children's books, gift cards, baby and kids size clothing, or shoes, and safe cleaning supplies to assist a newly diagnosed PPCM heart momma's.
Community sponsors are the primary source of funding for our annual events and will help ensure its success. You can provide support in the following ways:
We are committed to bringing earlier detection of PPCM in new mothers.
1 in 1300 women will be diagnosed with PPCM in her lifetime. When people donate, they’re joining one community, united and committed to increasing awareness for PPCM. Discover the nationwide impact of this community, and witness the difference we can make together when we raise one more dollar, take one more step, and share one more story.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have identified additional genetic mutations that strongly predispose otherwise healthy women to peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM), a rare condition characterized by weakness of the heart muscle that begins sometime during the final month of pregnancy through 5 months after delivery.
PPCM often leads to lifelong heart failure and can result in severe heart failure and death.
The cause of PPCM was entirely unknown until a 2016 study suggested that certain genetic mutations predispose women to the disease. The current study identifies 4 additional genetic variants that were not previously connected to PPCM.
The study provides the first extensive genetic and phenotype landscape of PPCM and has major implications for understanding how PPCM and DCM are related to each other. It shows that predisposition to heart failure is an important risk factor for PPCM, suggesting that approaches being developed for DCM may also apply to patients with PPCM.”
