We are now offering our "Heart to Heart" program.  Aortic Hope's Heart to Heart program aims to connect people, on a one-to-one basis, with the goal being to provide each other support while recovering from and living with aortic disease. This includes survivors and caregivers.  

 

ONLINE SUPPORT GROUPS

Aortic Hope's goal is to be seen as the post-operative/patient advocacy group to turn to for support. We provide Hope, Support, and Awareness to the community. By providing virtual support groups, we are by no means inferring we are therapists or doctors. We are only providing the means in which individuals from around the world can connect "face-to-face” in a safe, secure environment without leaving their homes.
