OUR MISSION

The Heart Foundation’s mission is to save lives by educating the public about heart disease, promoting early detection, and supporting the research taking place under the direction of world-renowned cardiologist Dr. P.K. Shah in the quest to find more effective ways to prevent and treat the #1 cause of death in the U.S.

We dedicate ourselves to this mission in memory of Steven S. Cohen, an incredible husband, father, son, brother and friend.

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States

Coronary heart disease accounts for 1 in 7 deaths in the U.S., killing over 380,000 people a year.

Approximately every 40 seconds, an American will have a heart attack.

About 805,000 people in the US have heart attacks each year. Approximately 20% of those heart attacks are silent– the damage is done, but the person is not aware of it.

The estimated annual incidence of heart attack in the US is 605,000 new attacks and 200,000 recurrent attacks.

OUR AWARD

The Steven S. Cohen Humanitarian Award has been established to honor individuals who effect change within their communities and demonstrate a commitment to the betterment of humankind.
