The mission for the LetsTalkPPCM LLC. Non-Profit Organization is to eradicate Peri Partum Cardiomyopathy as a life-threatening heart disease found in pregnancy by:
1.Advancing Research- to capitalize on the advances that have been made in our understanding of this disease, a majority of research projects are translational in nature. Translational medical research seeks to take the medical discoveries that have been made in a laboratory setting and move them into medical practices that can be used by physicians to improve the lives of their pregnant patients.
2.Education- Many people around the world, including some physicians are not aware of this condition. Women who develop this condition usually have no prior underlying heart disease, and no other identifiable reason to develop heart disease. Their heart failure can be a temporary, self-limited condition, or can progress to permanent, severe, life-threatening heart failure.
3.Screening- LetsTalkPPCM wants to help provide some type of financial comfort to women who develop PPCM for screening to identify a subset of the population who should have additional testing to determine the presence or absence of the disease. A pro BNP blood test is not required for pregnant women and we want to change that.
4.Treatment- Some PPCM patients have to lose their jobs, get dropped from medicaid or no insurance at all to help pay for the type of new medication they now have to take unexpectedly to live a longer life. LetsTalkPPCM would like to provide financial relief of helping with prescription drugs cost to these patients.
5.Films- We have taking our social media platform to a unique way of sharing information. We now have $2 Tuesday fundraisers to help cover cost for our educational films on PPCM, but not many people donate. We are seeking financial assistance to help fund all five of our missions. Any generous donation will be used towards our cause.
