AF Information & Advice For Patients

Stories from the Heart

Share your story

We are approached by countless patients and caregivers who feel alone and misunderstood about their condition. So when we share others' stories with them, it gives them consolation to know they are not alone.

Share your story with us to feature on the website and maybe even in the media! We get a lot of journalists enquiring about AF Association members with unique stories. Your journey with AFib could help raise awareness of the condition and help many others who are living with it undiagnosed.
