THE STORY:

Help us reach our matching goal of $24,000.00 by donating $24.00 by September 24, 2016...

 Familial Hypercholesterolemia Facts: About 1 in 250 people worldwide have FH. In the United States alone, an estimated 1.3 million people live with FH. Yet only 10% of them are diagnosed. Can you imagine? Nearly 2 million people in the US might have FH and not even know it. Perhaps they won’t know it until they have a heart attack! This is what we want to change! Over 90% of people with FH have not been properly diagnosed. (1) FH runs in families. If one parent has FH, each child has a 50% chance of having FH. (2) 1 in 250 people in the world have FH. (1) An estimated 1.3 million people in the U.S. have FH. (1) If left untreated, men have a 50% rise of having a heart attack by age 50. Untreated women have a 30% risk by age 60. (3) 1 in 160,000 to 1 in 1 million people have HoFH. (1) FH is even more common in certain populations such as French Canadians, Ashkenazi Jews, Lebanese, and South African Afrikaners. In these populations FH may be found as frequently as 1 in every 67 people. 1. Nordestgaard B G et al. Eur Heart J: 2013, 34:3478-3490 2. Goldstein JL et al. Familial hypercholesterolemia.
