Listen to your heart!
It’s important to listen to your heart and be on the lookout for signs that could lead to heart diseases.
Do regular checkups!
It’s important to do regular checkups, preferably once a year, just to be sure!
Medication can save your life!
If heart disease is found early on, it can be treated with good medication thanks to research!
My name is Andreas, I’m 34 years old, and yeah, that’s me on the (old) picture above! Don’t worry though, I’m a very nice person. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke and I don’t do drugs. One thing I do have, is a heart disease!
A few years ago I was informed that I got something wrong with my heart, a condition that can cause instant heart failure, a condition that took my fathers life in his sleep 9 years ago (2008). And his father before him, and his father before him. All around the age of 50. It’s called dilated cardiomyopathy.
I’m 34 now (2017), and in some way I feel that 20 years may pass in a heartbeat. And who’s to say that it won’t happen earlier either. I will try to do as much as I can to stay alive, for myself, my family and friends, and most of all my lovely girlfriend, who I plan on spending many more years to come with.
I created the Heartbeard icon and #Heartbeard hashtag as a chance to fight heart disease. I will donate every commission earned selling the Heartbeard shirt’s to the Swedish Heart-Lung Foundation – to help end heart disease once and for all!
It’s very important that you share this page and help spread the word, because only together can we stand united and fight heart disease once and for all!
The Teespring campaign we had was great, but we are moving over to Spreadshirt, where you can buy your Heartbeard stuff in peace. No last day, no countdown and no stress. And as always, ALL proceeds goes to charity. Head on over to the Heartbeard Spreadshirt store!
You are more then welcome to donate to the cause without buying a shirt, and if you want to do that, please contact me at love[a]heartbeard.org.
All proceeds will be donated to the Heart-Lung Foundation
