Welcome to my Heart & Stroke Canvass page! I am volunteering in tribute to my mother, Cay Jennings. Although she suffered a stroke in 2015, because of the care that she received, she will turn 100 later this month!
Every year, Heart & Stroke canvassers across Canada raise funds for life-saving heart and stroke research, and I have no doubt that it is because of the funds provided by this research, that my mother is still with us today. I am asking you to contribute to help further this research so that others may be saved in future.
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!
