Two Hearts Are Better Than One
Connected By Hearts (CBH), an initiative of Parent Heart Watch, was founded in 2011 by a group of young people who had each been through their own heart-related illness and wanted to share these similar experiences. The CBH mission is to provide support, networking and education to young survivors of sudden cardiac arrest and those living with heart-related conditions.
We all come to CBH from different places. Many of us have experienced a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), while others were diagnosed with heart issues prior to having an event. Some of us still don’t have a specific diagnosis. Several of us are living with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker.
Whatever our story, we all share some commonalities. Our lives can be challenging but we know we can gather strength and compassion from each other.
We welcome you to Engage and Connect with this community. Whether it’s your story, or it’s your friend or sibling who has been affected, feel free to ask questions and reach out to us. We will provide answers to the best of our ability, with the opportunity to connect with people who can understand your personal situation.
