About the Irish Heart Foundation:
The Irish Heart Foundation is the national charity dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke and it relies on donations for 93% of its income. Today in Ireland more people die from heart and stroke-related illnesses than from cancer, road deaths and suicide combined. Against this background the Irish Heart Foundation works to bring hope, relief and a better future to families all over Ireland. The Irish Heart Foundation gives vital patient support through our Heart & Stroke helpline and provides high quality public information for all.
The Foundation supports pioneering medical research, campaigns for improved patient care, and promotes positive public health strategies. The organisation works in hospitals, schools and workplaces to support, educate and train people to save lives from heart disease and stroke. As a charity we are dependent on the generosity of the public to continue our vital good work. www.irishheart.ie www.stroke.ie
