Special Announcement: The Relaunch of HeartValveSurgery.com!

By Adam Pick on May 17, 2012

Dear Patients, Caregivers & Friends –

In 2006, we started this website with a goal to help one fellow patient through heart valve surgery. Over time, that mission has expanded to educate and empower all patients and their caregivers.

To accomplish that mission, our website has transformed to meet the needs of our growing community. That transformation continues today with the internal relaunch of HeartValveSurgery.com. To introduce everybody to the new platform, we created this introductory video.

 

 

While we are excited about the 50+ new features and functions of this upgraded platform, we know there is a lot more work to do.

Still, in this moment, I want to thank you for being a part of this extraordinary community. Your participation and your support of this project is making a significant difference in our collective pursuit of healthy hearts.

Over the next two weeks, we will highlight the new features of this website. If you like, you can subscribe to this blog (it’s free) to get the latest updates. Also, if you have any additional ideas or constructive criticism to improve this website, please let me know.

Again, thanks so much for your support!

Keep on tickin!
Adam

Adam: You have been a major factor in my knowledge of what is happening to my heart and its valves. You have helped many of my friends, who are now directly receiving your mail. I try to open and read all of your mail, thank you for all your work.

I admire your great dedication Adam to creating this website and the community it fosters. I have visited from time to time since my tricupsid valve replacement 9 months ago. I wonder if it is possible to group people’s stories under their particular valve issue e.g. mitral, aortic, etc.
I also request for consideration the following. I am Australian and would love to connect with other Australian valve patients due to proxmity and having a different health system from the US. There is nothing like this in Australia. Could another page on the site be dedicated to international patients?
Cheers,
Eileen
