Welcome to the Thoracic Aortic Disease (TAD) Coalition

A group of organizations and individuals who share a common mission of preventing premature deaths due to thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection.

Real People. Real Stories.

The TAD Coalition is committed to increasing public awareness of the factors that put people at risk for aortic aneurysm and dissection, and to improving the diagnosis and management of these life-threatening conditions.

Our work is inspired by the stories of so many people – young and old, men, women, and children, famous people and the people next door – who have suffered aortic aneurysm and dissection, or who are at risk. Learn more about their stories here.
