Home Every minute of every day 100,000 people in Scotland struggle to breathe as a result of chronic chest illness. • We care about those left isolated, worried and frightened as their condition worsens - as yet, there is no cure. Every 55 minutes someone in Scotland will have a heart attack. • We care about the survivors who are anxious and frustrated about what lies ahead & those left behind following the 9,000 premature deaths from Heart Disease in Scotland every year. Every 45 minutes someone in Scotland will have their first stroke. • We care about the recovery of survivors in their upward struggle back to independence and the young people left coping with the loss of a parent to stroke. And we care about the thousands of people across Scotland who are looking after loved ones with chest, heart and stroke conditions right now.
