Hi Friends and Family,
It is that time of year again where I am canvassing for the HEART & STROKE FOUNDATION. This charity is near and dear to my heart as I have lost both my father and father-in-law to heart attacks. My mom had a heart transplant in 2001, and my husband Chris is alive today because of his pacemaker. I'm canvassing to raise funds for research and to increase awareness.
This year’s campaign carries a powerful message: When it comes to women’s heart and brain health, it’s #TimeToSeeRed:
- Heart disease and stroke are the #1 cause of premature death for women in Canada
- Heart attack symptoms go unrecognized in 53% of women
- 2/3 of heart disease and stroke clinical research focuses on men
The numbers say it all. Women are under-researched, under-diagnosed, under-treated, and over-dying. It’s time to close the research gap and stop women dying unnecessarily. It’s #TimeToSeeRed.
By making a donation, you’ll become part of the push for change – shining a spotlight on the inequities and fueling the scientific discovery and collaborations needed to save lives.
Funding for research is needed for this crucial cause. Please donate to save lives and give the women we love #MoreMoments.
Thank you for supporting me!
