Caitlan Kane is a teacher, survivor, co-founder, and the mother of three children. Caitlan’s personal mission to drive heart-health awareness in women, a direct result of surviving Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM), post-birth of her third child. Her near-death experience changed her perspective on health, self-advocacy, and life. Caitlan is a board member with the Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Association (PCA) which helps bring survivors together, raise awareness, and support current research. Caitlan also co-founded Sisters@Heart to improve the lives of those affected by heart disease and stroke at a local level. Caitlan also serves on the Heart and Vascular Board for Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, a 793-bed teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Caitlan earned both her undergraduate and Master’s in Education at Providence College.
“ I serve on the board of the PCA to help fellow survivors find other PPCM patients for support, to locate the best doctors in their area, to share the most current research, and to help raise awareness for this often misdiagnosed disease.”
