• About "The Way To My Heart"

    OUR MISSION is to educate, engage, & empower patients to take responsibility for their healthcare so they live a better quality of life.


    OUR PROGRAMS provide real-time, scalable, advocacy and support for patients with our wellness team that includes a nurse, physical therapist, fitness coach, certified health coach, Internal Medicine/Functional Medicine Doctor (specializing in nutrition/diet), Pharmacist, and stress reduction coach. Our programs and available resources lead to earlier testing/diagnosis, more productive & satisfying conversations between patients and physicians, and long-term adherence to lifestyle modifications.


    OUR PURPOSE is to reduce the 1.5 million heart attacks and strokes each year, 200,000 amputations annually, and deadly comorbidity complications due to viruses.


    YOUR SUPPORT helps us bridge that gap between diagnosis, treatment, and compliance TOGETHER. We are funded through donations from physicians, industry, and individuals. Donate now.

  • Meet the Founder!

    Emmy Award-winning Journalist Kym McNicholas

    Kym started The Way To My Heart after covering a story in which she was not satisfied with the ending. The story began with travel around the world over the last five years to ten countries and more than two dozen States to cover, as a journalist, the FDA Clearance process & global commercialization of what some told her could be a game-changing device in unblocking arteries.


    During her journey, Kym observed thousands of hours of procedures in which Vascular Specialists used multiple methods to unblock arteries in legs and heart, interviewed hundreds of doctors and patients, and met with dozens of medical device-makers, as well as hospital and Office-Based Lab/Ambulatory Surgery Center administrators.


    Through that experience she discovered many heart attacks, strokes, and amputations are preventable. A big problem is that innovation in healthcare is moving at the speed of light and patients as well as doctors are quickly falling behind. That's when she decided to bridge that gap by educating, engaging, and empowering patients to take their healthcare into their own hands.


    Kym's life purpose is saving life & limb.
