The Cardiomyopathy Association (CMA) is a registered charity that provides information and support to families affected by the heart muscle disease cardiomyopathy. We provide easy-to-understand information on the different types of cardiomyopathy. We have a freephone helpline (0800 0181 024) that is manned from 8.30am to 4.30pm on weekdays. Callers can usually speak to one of our cardiomyopathy support nurses or our medical director
Families affected by cardiomyopathy face a bewildering situation as they come to terms with their situation and seek to learn more about the condition. The Cardiomyopathy Association is there to help them. Our services help relieve the feelings of anxiety, isolation and confusion which people commonly feel when affected by cardiomyopathy.
We help them to understand cardiomyopathy, reducing their fears and promoting independence. As well as this website, we provide a free helpline, information booklets, cardiomyopathy support nurses, information days, support groups and a network of volunteers, called key contacts, who provide one-to-one support over the telephone or by email.
We have also supported clinical care by funding specialist nurses posts in different parts of the UK, and we provide cardiomyopathy medical conferences for doctors and nurses.
The Cardiomyopathy Association is the only UK charity dedicated to providing support and information to families affected by cardiomyopathy. It is supported by supporter donations, gifts in wills and fundraising. See how you can support the CMA.
