The mission of the Family Heart Foundation is to save generations of families from heart disease through timely identification and improved care of familial hypercholesterolemia and elevated lipoprotein(a). Through research, advocacy, and education we play a critical role in driving change and empowering families to navigate their own health. Right now, all over the world, 1 in 250 adults and children have familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) and 1 in 5 have elevated Lipoprotein(a), also known as Lp(a). Those who are diagnosed with either FH or high Lp(a) need help and hope, but far too many have no idea of these genetic risks. The Family Heart Foundation is pioneering research, advocacy, and education to help prevent heart attacks and strokes caused by elevated lipoprotein(a) and familial hypercholesterolemia, two inherited disorders that have an impact across generations.
