Our Mission

 

Aortic Hope (501c3 Charity) is a community of patients, survivors, and caregivers living with an aortic disease.

 

The community's goals are to Spread Hope, Create Awareness, and Provide Support to patients, survivors, and caregivers during the recovery and management of aortic disease.

Spread Hope

 

Spreading hope is the cornerstone of what Aortic Hope is about. We spread hope online by providing:

  • Inspirational stories posted by community members

  • Hope Mail Care Packages sent to community members

  • Saturday Survivor Video and Blog Series

Create Awareness

 

Aortic Hope wants to help educate the public. To achieve this goal we:

  • Actively participate as a working group member of Think Aorta US

  • Participate in radio shows, podcasts, Rotary Clubs, local fundraising, speaking at symposiums and educational events such as the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health Community Symposium

  • Offer items on our Hope Shops to spread awareness

 

Provide Support

 

Navigating the recovery and management of aortic disease is often confusing and overwhelming.  Aortic Hope provides support for aortic disease patients, survivors, and caregivers by:

  • Hosting Live Q&A sessions on our Facebook page with professionals associated with Aortic Health

  • Featuring Ask A Dr. and allowing community members to have questions answered in real time by a Cardiologist

  • Offering weekly online support group and include guest speakers

  • Presenting Tableside Information Cards

  • Collaborating with The Mended Hearts and promoting their accreditation program so community members can become mentors
