Help Us Save Lives — Prevent Strokes From Atrial Fibrillation (Afib)

November 29 is Giving Tuesday, the day of charity and generosity that immediately follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday and kicks off the Giving Season.

Each year, 1.7 million people worldwide die or are disabled by afib-related strokes. Through raising awareness and providing education and support, we at StopAfib.org are wiping out afib strokes and helping those living with afib to get their lives back.

We need your help now, more than ever! Please make a donation if our AF Patient Conference, reporting from medical conferences, helping you stay up to date on the latest afib news and events, or our discussion forum have helped you or a loved one.

Please give now! You can help us save lives — perhaps even yours!

Our friends at the Alliance for Aging Research have kicked off their A Year Without a Stroke public service campaign, which features the real stories of people who have experienced and seen first-hand how serious AFib-related strokes can be.

StopAfib.org CEO Mellanie True Hills is pleased to be a part of this campaign, which also features Sharon and Randall Munson, friends of StopAfib.org.

Roosevelt Gilliam III, MD.
