Hello family and friends!
I'm canvassing again this year for Heart & Stroke to raise funds for the next research breakthrough! I hope you'll help me support Canada's top researchers.
I canvass for Heart & Stroke for 3 reasons:
- My brother Billy: Last September Billy died of a stroke. Suddenly, quickly, without warning.... We miss him terribly.
- My brother Bob: In 2015 my brother Bob had a stroke. Thanks to his quick-thinking wife and a hospital close by, he was given a shot that prevented serious damage from the stroke.
- My Dad: In 1973 my Dad died, at the tender age of 48, from coronary artery disease.
So you can see that this cause is close to my heart!
All of the money I raise will go to Heart & Stroke, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients. Thanks in part to the work of Heart & Stroke, there has been a 75% decline in heart disease and stroke death rate since 1952.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today.
If you would like to donate online, please click the big red "Donate Now" button on the right side of this page. Perhaps you too have a loved one who is touched by heart or stroke.
Keep in mind that thanks to our partnership with the LOVE YOU by Shoppers Drug Mart™ program, all donations in Heart Month (February) will be matched up to a total amount of $250,000*.
A heartfelt thanks to you!
