An Introduction to Living with Heart Failure

Hear from Paula, who has been living with heart failure, about the importance of living well and taking care of your health.

What Is Heart Failure?

Heart failure describes a condition where the heart is unable to meet the needs of the body. It is a chronic condition, which means most people live with heart failure for the rest of their lives.

Three Heart Failure Champions Share Their Stories

Meet Cindy, her father’s essential caregiver; Lori, a congenital heart disease patient who has lived with heart failure all of her life; and Noli, a man who has recently been diagnosed with heart failure. Discover what makes them unique and similar, and what they would like you to know about living with heart failure.
