MyLVAD Foundation’s purpose is to raise funding through but not limited to educational grants to support the operation and continued development of MyLVAD.com.
MyLVAD.com is an independent website whose mission is to provide unbiased information, education and support for patients with end-stage heart failure who require Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) Therapy (LVAD’s and Artificial Hearts). It also serves to provide information for MCS patients’ families and Medical Providers who interact with MCS patients in the United States. MyLVAD.com has traditionally provided free resources to its users in the form of information, user support forums, videos, and live interactive support groups. It is the only website dedicated to supporting these patients and was previously funded through corporate donations.
Through the MyLVAD Foundation, we hope to continue operation and expand offerings of MyLVAD.com through application for unrestricted educational grants which require 501c3 status for participation.
