Founded in 2020 by a team of volunteers, the Pericarditis Alliance provides a much-needed advocacy and information forum for pericarditis patients and healthcare providers. Along with prominent healthcare providers, researchers and professionals, the Pericarditis Alliance is comprised of pericarditis patients who have experienced a challenging and frightening path to correct diagnosis and effective treatment. We are personally motivated to make an impactful difference in advancing the diagnosis and treatment of pericarditis.
Currently, there is limited awareness, research or advocacy into the causes, prevention and treatment of chronic, complicated or recurrent pericarditis. Our goal is to grant funding for ongoing research into pericarditis, fund activities to educate patients and the healthcare community, and provide a supportive space for patients, their families, and caregivers to find information about the disease.
It is estimated that each year in the United States, 40,000 people suffer from chronic or recurrent pericarditis. We rely on the support of community donations to continue and grow our valuable work.
