After feeling unwell throughout the day, and knowing something was not right, Brooke Jones had a cardiac arrest when she wanted to go shower. Her husband managed to save her. She had another one in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. And a third one once she had arrived there.

Note that The Heart Warrior Project is run by one guy, which is, yes, me.

In between work, studies at university, and just life, I try to squeeze in some time almost every day to work on this project. This project takes a lot of work, as I genuinely want to deliver high-quality and helpful content for survivors here. 

And I do it with much joy every day. 

However, it’s not only time that this project requires, but, obviously, money to keep it running: from website hosting, to plugins that make the website more functional, my proofreader, Adobe Creative (to edit the podcast episodes), a booking system to make it easy for guests to appear on the show, and podcast hosting.

I do not mind paying for any of these as I care a great deal about this project. 

But help is always appreciated.

Therefore, if you have found or come to find anything helpful or insightful here on the website, please consider supporting The Heart Warrior Project.

If you are a survivor, I would recommend buying either a Heart Warrior t-shirt or a Heart Warrior mug—or both! I, together with an illustrator, created the design for them.

Both the t-shirt and the mug are made from durable and quality materials, and don’t they look just great?!

If the t-shirt or mug doesn’t speak to you, there are a few other ways to support The Heart Warrior Project:

  • BUY ME A COFFEE: If you think I deserve a coffee for the work I put into this project, you can support me with a virtual coffee on Ko-fi. What will I do with the proceeds? Well, due to my heart disease, I won’t be enjoying a cup myself. Instead, I’ll channel the funds into further project development. Anything, even as little as €2, can help me to keep this project alive.
  • AFFILIATE LINKS: If there are any links to a product mentioned in an article or podcast episode and you are interested in buying it, consider doing so through the provided link. Likely, it will be an affiliate link. What is an affiliate link, you ask? Basically, it is a link where I could earn a small commission if someone buys the product through that link. Buying through this link will not cost you anything extra.
  • SPREAD THE WORD: If you like what I am doing here, you could always simply spread the word about this project to anyone you think might benefit. It would help a lot.

Choosing any of these ways to support this project will truly help me a lot in putting out more content and building The Heart Warrior Project further.

Many thanks,
