Our Story

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection, or SCAD, impacts the lives of both the afflicted and their families. It is most often misdiagnosed and can occur with no clear warning signs. SCAD Alliance is dedicated to understanding and managing this unforeseen condition and supporting those whom it has affected.


You Are Not Alone

We are a growing network of fellow Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection survivors, researchers and clinicians devoted to the mission of supporting you, your family and your health care team.
