Research has given us machines that can restart hearts, the ability to fix arteries in tiny babies, the power to give someone a heart they weren’t born with, and so much more.

But heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 in the UK, they cause heartbreak on every street. And that’s why the work of the British Heart Foundation is as urgent and vital as ever.

Our research, is the promise to protect the people we love. Our parents. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our grandparents. Our closest friends.

Research is who we are. The promise of future preventions, treatments and cures.

People’s donations have got us this far. Every breakthrough we’ve made, funded by people.
