HeartBeat Trust is an Irish charity working to help everyone prevent, protect and predict heart failure in order to live healthier and happier lives.
Ireland has higher death rates from heart failure than breast and bowel cancer and so we commenced our life saving clinical trials, research and heart screening appointments as far back in 2004. Today in 2020, each week 100 people are diagnosed with Heart Failure.
Thanks to many kind people our research has lead in vital medical heart failure breakthroughs in the last few decades. Even a small gift in your will can help save another heart and change attitudes to our health.
Leaving a gift in your will means that you can make a substantial contribution that costs nothing in your lifetime but will mean everything to someone else someday, and will make you feel good now knowing that you’ll be changing –and genuinely saving – many people’s lives.
If or when the time is right for you to include a gift in your will please remember us. A gift, no matter how small, will make a big difference.
