What We Do
Our mission is to promote cardiovascular wellness through prevention, awareness, and partnerships in the Charlotte Mecklenburg area. We focus mainly on cardiovascular wellness and education by treating the risks such as diabetes, stroke, and hypertension. We have a free clinic in the SouthEnd area which helps patients that have (or at high risk for) Heart Disease or Diabetes.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
How We Are Impacted:
Our patients are in need now more than ever. The people that we help have a very high risk of developing severe complications of COVID-19 due to their underlying health issues (heart disease, diabetes, hypertension). Most of our patients have also lost their jobs which is creating a critical financial situation for them. We are focusing much of our energy right now on making sure that they receive the life-saving medication they need, helping them to get the food and everyday necessities that they desperately need, and helping them to navigate the complex ever-changing issues that are affecting their limited finances during this complicated time.
How You Can Help:
We have lost our funding for this quarter due to having to cancel multiple planned fundraisers because of COVID-19. We are in desperate need of funding in order to help our patients now as well as to continue all of our programs and services once this crisis has passed. Please consider donating to HeartBright during this time so that we can help assist our patients as needed with emergency needs.
