My Life - September 2015

Jenny Rees, who helps run the Cheshire and Merseyside Cardiomyopathy Support Group, and Paul Nicholls talk about how, despite their dilated cardiomyopathy, they are getting on with life.

There’s an article on the work of our cardiomyopathy support nurses and how people rate the service they provide, and another on three of our supporters who are helping with a project to improve the lives of people with heart failure around the world.

There’s also the regular Q and A page from Professor Perry Elliott, from the inherited heart disease team at the Barts Heart Centre, and an item on the new NHS standard for treating atrial fibrillation. We also talk about our new booklet on living with cardiomyopathy and how to order it.

Research stories include items on a new approach to stem cell treatment, how internal defibrillators improve heart function, and the new heart failure treatment Entresto which has won its first approval in America.

There’s also stories about our fundraisers and what you can do to help us support families affected by cardiomyopathy.
