Hear from our heroes 

"I became a regular giver as I wanted to be a part of something meaningful and give back to a great cause. I’ve watched my family members struggle and battle this disease every day. The Heart Foundation gives me hope that we can find a solution for this terrible disease. If research can help save one life, so another family doesn’t have to endure the pain of heart disease, it’s worth it."

– Kelly Millet 


"As a paramedic, I can save the life of someone you love. As a Heart Foundation supporter, I can help save thousands. Surviving my own heart attack reminded me how much the Heart Foundation’s investment in research and education programs improves outcomes for all Australians."

– Rob Marley 



Someone willing to make a small sacrifice to help save the lives of thousands of other people is a hero. Thanks to people like Kelly and Rob, the Heart Foundation can carry out its mission to prevent heart disease and improve the heart health and quality of life of all Australians.
