Ciao Family and Friends ...
Today marks the official start of HEART AND STROKE MONTH and my 9th year canvassing!! I am really proud to say that 97% of your donation goes to research, while only 3% goes to administration and they are working very hard to reduce this number as well. Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. Women are under-diagnosed and under-researched and dying unnecessarily. It is the #1 cause of premature death in women in Canada. 53% of women who experience heart attack symptoms have them go unrecognized. Shocking!!! Am hoping that in this new decade that cardiovascular disease will be eliminated.
And once again, Shoppers Drug Mart is matching on-line donations from February 1 - 28th. That means that your donations are DOUBLED!!!
Last year, with your support, I raised $3,000.00, which became $6,000.00 with the match!!! To quote my dearly departed brother-in-law ....WOWIE-ZOWIE!!! Just amazing!! As many of you know, Heart and Stroke is very near and dear to me and to my family.
As always, I thank you so very much for your on-going support!!
