• We’re facing a villain.

    The true Ladykiller is heart disease.

    Heart disease kills one woman nearly every eighty seconds and more women than all cancers combined. This disease continues victorious because of misinformation, misdiagnosis and mistreatment. Until the world realizes a woman’s heart is different than a man’s, we won’t change a thing.

    The Women’s Heart Alliance (WHA) was formed to raise awareness, encourage action and drive new research to fight women’s heart disease. We want every woman to rally together to fight the Ladykiller.
