Support Basic Research
Become active today and support basic research!
Heart disease is one of the most common diseases in the developed world. Nearly one in four people suffer from one form of cardiovascular disease in the United States alone. Coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, and high blood pressure were the cause of nearly one third of all U.S. deaths in 2007.
Despite of its significance, basic research into cardiovascular diseases and muscular dystrophies receives a disproportionate low level of funding from the NIH budget.

"Science, research and innovation are the future for our economy, for job growth and for healthier, more productive lives. Our national deficit poses a serious challenge, and we must meet that challenge and solve our deficit and debt problem. But in so doing, we must prioritize what is vital to us and what is not and build on our areas of worldwide leadership. In medical research, we have always been and are today the global leader. We cannot allow that to be lost. We must protect funding for the federal agencies that drive our competitiveness in the world and our leadership in science and innovation." (John Edward Porter, former congressman R-IL).
