Welcome to the Support Network!

We are so glad that you are here with us. Take some time to find your way around your favorite sections, reconnect with old friends and explore some of the many new educational information we now offer: including:

  • A Regaining Independence section,
  • A listing of National Days and Months to Support, and
  • An enhanced Your Questions Answered section.

We are very excited to bring these new features to further support you  as your engaging, sharing and inspiring each other through your recovery journey.

As with any change, there are a few features that did not come over with the previous platform, such as private messaging and system generated notifications of new conversations and activity on the site.

But we urge you to stop in daily and see what new conversations are developing. Or, start your own post in any of our conversation areas, including some of these new ones:

Emotional Well-Being -
Cardiac Surgeries and Procedures -

Your feedback is invaluable to our efforts as we continuously work to improve your experience  and ensure that your transition to the refreshed site is seamless.

If you need to message me directly, please send an email to and I will respond back as quickly as possible. The majority of the time, you can expect AHA assistance during the hours of 8:30 a.m. -5:00 p.m. ET. Additionally, our team of Volunteer Moderators will be returning to the site and helping very soon.

Thank you for continuing to share your patient or caregiver journey with us. It is our honor to provide these services for you.
