Fundraising for the Family Heart Foundation

People with elevated lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a), familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), and homozygous FH are at high risk for early heart attack and stroke. Many already have cardiovascular disease because of a missed or delayed diagnosis.

Show your support for people living with genetic lipid disorders by creating your very own fundraising event!

No child should lose a parent too soon from preventable heart disease and no parent should have to worry that their child will suffer the same fate as generations before them. Let’s make sure everyone is diagnosed early and has the chance to live free of heart attacks and strokes.
