"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

Roy Salmon Patient, A-Fib Free; pacemakerclub.com, Sept. 2013

Want to become an A-Fib Support Volunteer?

A-Fib changes your life. There’s the emotional impact after being diagnosed. Then you have important decisions to make about your treatment and how to adjust to life with your A-Fib symptoms.

It helps to have someone who has “been there” and is there for them now. Having someone to turn to for advice, emotional support, and a sense of hope that one can be cured gives peace of mind.

Become a A-Fib Support Volunteer

We are blessed to have many generous people who have volunteered to help others get through their A-Fib ordeal.

Most A-Fib Support Volunteers are not medical personnel  They are not paid. They come from widely different backgrounds and live around the globe.

These volunteers have gone through a lot while seeking their A-Fib cure. They have been helped along the way and want to return the favor. They offer other patients support and hope through exchanging emails, “listening” and sharing their stories. (Not all Support Volunteers are ‘cured’ of their A-Fib, but have found the best outcome for themselves.)

Is this something you want to do? To begin, I suggest you browse the A-Fib Support Group page on our website at http://a-fib.com/resources-and-links/resource-support-volunteers/.

Here’s what A-Fib Support Volunteers agree to:

  • List their name and email address by geographic area/country (a few list a phone #);
  • Accept emails and answer in a timely manner;
  • “Listen”, encourage and offer hope of finding a cure.


If this is for you, email me at ssryan(at)a-fib.com with the following information about yourself:
  1. Tell me why you want to be a support volunteer
  2. Your full name (for our correspondence) AND how you want It published
  3. Your City /US state; or your international city/country
  4. The email address you want listed (if different from the email for our correspondence)
  5. The email of a  family member or friend as a  backup contact if we loose contact with you.
  6. Any additional info about your expertise with A-Fib
  7. Attach a good quality photo of yourself (a head shot) in .jpg format. (It helps the reader relate to you.)
  8. Optional: We have a gift for you for signing up (flashlight keychain with our logo). If you wish, give us a shipping address.


I will review the information you’ve sent for completeness Then I’ll format your listing for our A-Fib Support Volunteers listing page. My wife, Patti, will prepare your photo (crop, color correct, etc.). Then we’ll send it all back to you for your approval. We will post your listing shortly after we get an okay from you.


Did I miss anything? I bet you have questions. Just email me at ssryan@a-fib.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
