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

  • Weekly Saturday Survivor Series

Create Awareness

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

  • 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 www.cafepress.com/hopeshop  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

  • Offering weekly online support group and include guest speakers

  • Presenting Tableside Information Cards

  • Connecting survivors through our Heart-to-Heart program
