Happy Valentine’s Day!
If today’s all about heart, the Children’s Cardiomyopathy Foundation couldn't be left far behind.
CCF is a national, non-profit organization focused on pediatric cardiomyopathy, a chronic disease of the heart muscle. CCF is dedicated to accelerating the search for cures while improving diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for children affected by cardiomyopathy.
What they do is amazing- they have successfully created a platform where parents, medical practitioners and friends and relatives can all come together and share and learn from each others experience.
I have seen the emails- the pain, the troubles, the sleepless nights that the parents share and find strength in each other- its touching and sad to see the children go through so much when we adults take our lives and our “hearts” for granted.
CCF was founded by Eddie Yu & Lisa Yue, parents who lost two young children to cardiomyopathy, CCF has grown over the years and is managed by a small staff and guided by a medical advisory board. Today, CCF reaches out to more than 2,000 physicians and 1,500 families worldwide.
Lisa Yue whom I have known for couple of years now and met in New York City is true to the cause as is her staff.
The site is a center of knowledge about the disease from the medical glossary to dealing with a losing child.
So, to honor the cause- Ill be putting up the CCF logo on the side bar and if you wish, you can visit and support their cause:
•Making a donation
•Volunteering your time and skills
