THE STORY:

     Thank you for visiting the page for O’Hare Family Cardiovascular Research Fund which supports crucial research for cardiomyopathy at Brigham and Women's hospital.  Our family has a deep, personal connection to this research and are thrilled that you have decided to honor our family with a donation to help others with the Lamin gene share more moments with those they love.


More information: 

     Generously established at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in 2013, the O’Hare Family Cardiovascular Research Fund provides critical support for research focused on deepening our understanding of cardiomyopathy—a condition that causes the cardiac muscles to become enlarged and weakened—and developing new therapies to improve patient outcomes. In particular, the O’Hare Fund supports current investigations focused on the influence of the Lamin gene—which encodes proteins that help stabilize and regulate the cellular nucleus of muscle cells—in cardiomyopathy. Under the leadership of Neal Lakdawala, MD—a cardiovascular medicine specialist and attending physician—work underway at BWH’s Heart and Vascular Genetics Program is yielding new insights into the clinical characteristics of Lamin cardiomyopathy, testing promising treatments, and helping bring best practices to clinical care. The time will eventually come when these conditions are easily prevented or halted in their early stages. The O’Hare Family Cardiovascular Research Fund has enabled our work to progress and given us encouragement as we continue to expand our understanding of heart disease prevention and treatment.
