Caitlan Kane is a mother of three children, survivor of Peripartum Cardiomyopathy, co-founder of non-profit Sisters@Heart and an international speaker for women’s heart health. Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a rare form of heart disease that occurs during the last month of pregnancy or up to five months after giving birth. Caitlan’s condition was missed by her delivery doctors along with two emergency room doctors who diagnosed her with pneumonia. Via happenstance, four days postpartum, Caitlan was fortunate to have her General Practitioner randomly present in the emergency room. He recognized that she was in heart failure and rushed her to the ICU. Caitlan’s mission is to raise awareness in the medical community and to fundraise for research in an effort to achieve more timely diagnosis of PPCM, ultimately saving lives. Caitlan is a board member of the Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Association and Brigham & Women’s Heart and Vascular Board. She also advocates for Her Fate and the American Heart Association.
