Confused, Helpless, and Alone

That's how Myesha Bruce felt when her 7-month-old daughter, Ahsha, unexpectedly died from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Seeking answers and support, Myesha turned to the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF). The CCF online community welcomed Myesha and helped her to connect with other moms and better understand the disease.

"It took a lot of courage to write my first post on CCF Connect," Myesha said. "It's been so helpful to meet other moms who understand. The support I received helped me through the grieving process, and now I want to help others."

Today, Myesha is a CCF Ambassador who raises awareness of pediatric cardiomyopathy in her community by distributing literature to doctors, health care centers, schools, and community organizations.

With your help, the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation can continue to support moms like Myesha so they don't feel isolated and hopeless. Here's how you can help:

  • $100 provides a month of online support
  • $50 funds our physician-led webinars and Q&A sessions
  • $25 supports the development of educational fact sheets

Give today and help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 to fund support services and educational resources for families affected by pediatric cardiomyopathy.
