We're on a crusade!

Our mission is to educate, support and advocate for women's heart health, thereby affecting not only their lives but also those of their families.

The Heart2Heart Foundation has a strong commitment to raising awareness about the number one killer of women, and men, in America - heart disease and believes strongly in educating all age groups about ways to control or prevent the risk factors that lead to heart disease.  We also know that to make permanent changes in our community, we need to educate our children as well!

 

Awareness and education are, quite literally, at the heart of all we do.  It isn't enough to tell women what we need to do, we want to help them do it!   Once you are aware that heart disease is your biggest health threat, then what?  It's vital that you know what risk factors, if any, you may have for developing heart disease.  Through our strategic partnership with health care providers and the generorsity of our donors, we are able to provide women heart health screenings and risk assessments at no charge!   All of the funds raised locally are utilized to help LOCAL women receive the educational and screening information they need to continue the dialogue with their doctors.

Our programs include:

MISSION:RED 

Our newest awareness and educational initiative that is customizable for your group. You pick the topics and we'll secure the speakers for you!

  • schedule in the morning to include heart health screenings 
  • use our program for a lunch-n-learn or afternoon program 
  • create an evening dinner program 

Statewide Screening Day

We believe that awareness and education are the foundation of everything that we do! We also strongly believe that early screenings for heart disease saves lives!  That's why in 2015, we worked with Governor Nikki Haley's office and the SC DHEC to create our Statewide Screening Day Initiative.  Held on the third Thursday of Heart Month (February), we partner with health care providers from across the state of South Carolina to offer free basic heart health screenings to women and men!

#RedHeartMamas

Introducing our new women's awareness campaign! By becoming a Red Heart Mama, you will become part of our national effort to raise awareness about OUR number one killer and, more importantly, that we can PREVENT this devestating disease not only for ourselves but for our families!

Our goal is to help women collectively say that we want:

• more women screened early for heart disease
• physicians to work together for the total health of the woman
• to see that 50% of the research on heart health to include women
• more gender-specific studies
• women who have had heart issues to be referred to cardiac rehab 
• women to be able to complete cardiac rehab
• more mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, wives, and friends to live out their years with their family!
