We are a community of patients providing peer to peer support to those in need of help and guidance in living with an implanted cardiac device. Providing information and perspectives from the unique point of those who have lived with an Implanted Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD or CRT-D). Working together to solve issues we all face living with heart disease.
In keeping with scientific evidence that humor has a positive effect on heart health, we like to keep things on the lighter side here, while still providing critical information to one another on our conditions and health care. Laughter triggers many positive effects on the body including reducing stress levels. So please donít expect doom, gloom and morose conversations here, weíre far too busy enjoying the adventure of life.
Ours is a global community comprised of members from all walks of life, with diverse backgrounds and beliefs, located in all corners of the world. Our goal is to educate and support one another through the vast experience represented by our membership and help one another on this journey.
We are delighted you stopped by and hope that you will join and actively participate on our Message Board. Membership is free, and patients, families, and friends of those with defibrillators, and those suffering heart disease which may result in a defibrillator as therapy are all welcome to join in. Sign up details are here
Members can remain totally anonymous if they choose, in fact we have some members who arenít even sure who they are. So the cost is right, free, you can remain anonymous, and support is available 24/7/365 so no more excuses for not joining in the fun and converse directly with others in the same leaking boat.
