The Pumping Marvellous Foundation, the UK’s Heart Failure Charity
The Pumping Marvellous Foundation is the UK’s Heart Failure Charity. Heart Failure is a condition that affects up to 900,000 people in the UK. This figure doesn’t include, carers and families that manage the consequences of heart failure on a daily basis. In Europe there are 15 million people affected by Heart Failure. Globally there are up to 27 million people that we know about who have heart failure. Prognosis is often poor and symptoms are debilitating. People who have heart failure have to manage the physical symptoms. The psychological impact of the condition needs to be managed. There is a lack of focus, engagement and action. Heart failure presents a tsunami of challenges for health economies.
The Pumping Marvellous Foundation was founded by Nick Hartshorne-Evans. Nick was 39 when diagnosed with Heart Failure after a viral attack on his heart. He was dismayed that there was not a Heart Failure Charity focussed on the needs of the patient. He set the group up to advocate, provide help and support for people having to manage Heart Failure. The Pumping Marvellous Foundation also helps carers and families. The Heart Failure Charity the Pumping Marvellous Foundation is led by it’s Patients. It is guided by it’s world class Heart Failure specialists on it’s Clinical Board led by Professor Martin Cowie of Imperial College, London.
