The Pulse - October 2022

The Pulse — October 2022

Happy Fall! We are looking forward to seeing you virtually during our Fall Meeting on Tuesday, November 8, from 1–5pm ET. Registration details are included below.
We have had a busy couple of months since our last newsletter in July, including the pilot launch of the Heart Failure registry, a successful Fontan Referral design meeting, and reaching over 1,000 patients entered into our VAD Registry. Join us for our Fall Meeting to see what’s coming for the rest of 2022!


Cardiomyopathy patients have heart muscle problems that affect the ability of the heart to fill with blood and/or eject blood to the body. In some cases, they may have signs and symptoms of heart failure—these patients will need routine monitoring and may need treatment such as cardiac medicines, mechanical devices, or transplantation.

Juliana is happy and healthy after her heart transplant.

Finding Heart — Juliana’s Story

At 11 days old, Juliana waited for a new heart while her mother, Riki, fought breast cancer. Together as mother and daughter, they faced unexpected challenges, braved mounting treatments, endured long waits and recovery. Now, Riki shares their story in thanks to the community of support they found along the way.
