Every 10 minutes an Australian suffers a heart attack.

Sadly, many do not survive, with 48 Australians dying every single day from heart disease – someone’s family member, wife, husband, or special friend that means the world to them.

Given that heart disease is our biggest killer, it would be impossible for all Australian communities to not be impacted in some way.

The simple fact is that there is still so much for us to learn about heart disease, and research saves lives.

Heart Research Australia aims to reduce the devastating impact heart disease has on families and the community by supporting world-class and emerging researchers to conduct ground-breaking research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

That’s why, this February we invite all Australians to get involved with REDFEB, heart health awareness month, to raise much-needed funds for ground-breaking research into heart disease. Getting involved is as simple as wearing red and donating to Heart Research Australia during the month of February.

For more information or to donate, please visit heartresearch.com.au.

On behalf of the thousands of Australians impacted by heart disease every year, thank you for your support.

Nicci Dent, Heart Research Australia CEO.
