Cardiomyopathy Association

The Cardiomyopathy Association (CMA) is a registered charity that helps people and their families affected by the heart muscle disease cardiomyopathy. We provide support and easy-to-understand information on the different types of cardiomyopathy.

People affected by cardiomyopathy face a bewildering situation as they come to terms with their situation and seek to learn more about the condition. The Cardiomyopathy Association is there to help them. Our services are there to help relieve the feelings of anxiety, isolation and confusion which people commonly feel when affected by cardiomyopathy.

We help them to understand cardiomyopathy, reducing their fears and promoting independence. As well as this website, we provide a free helpline, information booklets, cardiomyopathy support nurses, information days, support groups and a network of volunteers, called key contacts, who provide one-to-one support over the telephone or by email.

We have also supported clinical care by funding specialist nurses posts in different parts of the UK, and we provide cardiomyopathy medical conferences for doctors and nurses.

The Cardiomyopathy Association is the only UK charity dedicated to providing support and information to families affected by cardiomyopathy. It is supported solely by public donation.

If you have any questions about cardiomyopathy, we usually have a trained nurse in the office who can answer most queries. If you have a very specialised question that we cannot answer, we can seek advice from top cardiomyopathy experts at the Heart Hospital in London.
