We can make a difference. Every dollar, every story shared, and every story heard results in a better understanding of SCAD.
SCAD is a life-altering event and can be fatal. Patients recovering from SCAD, many relatively young and previously active and athletic, now have activity and lifting restrictions. Many take a variety of medication, which can be a challenging source of fatigue and uncertainty. Some suffer from an all-consuming fear or have experienced post-traumatic stress disorder, and others have mild to severe depression.
Fear of SCAD continues to haunt SCAD patients because of the lack of understanding of the “how, when, and why” of this condition. Making the stress worse is the lack of understanding about SCAD in the medical community at large. The good news, however, is that the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) is seeking answers through research funded in part by SCAD Research, Inc.
