You have a grateful heart!

We are proud to announce the launch of Friends from the Heart, a new association for loyal friends and supporters of the MUSC Heart & Vascular Center. We have created this group to help keep you informed about the innovative work taking place here at the center, and also to celebrate and honor the ways that your support is helping to change the lives of the people we serve.

As a member of Friends from the Heart, you will receive benefits such as invitations to exclusive events, member newsletters, and recognition in our publications.

Many of you asked how you can help. Here are three things we invite you to do:

  1. Be ambassadors and tell others of the great patient care, education, and research happening at the MUSC Heart & Vascular Center.
  2. Join us for a tour of the MUSC Heart & Vascular Center. We want to introduce you to our team and help you learn more about the amazing innovations we can bring to caring for you and your family. To schedule a tour, contact Abigail Showalter at or 843-876-5215.
  3. Make us part of your charitable giving each year. Every dollar makes a difference! 

Your participation is indispensable as we strive to be recognized as the best heart and vascular center in South Carolina and beyond. Your help is changing what’s possible in the future of heart care!

Thank you again for your friendship, caring, and support. You are a special part of our MUSC Heart & Vascular Center family and we remain most grateful!
