Welcome to my Heart & Stroke Canvass page!
This my tenth year of canvassing. Even though going door to door is my favourite method of fund raising, as many as 12 streets, I'm unable to do it that way because I'm scheduled for hip surgery this spring. Using a cane or walker to go up and down slippery sidewalks and driveways is impossible this winter.
So I'm appealing to you to donate to my homepage. You will receive a tax receipt for any generous amount of $15 or more and wat's more, your online donation will be matched by Shoppers Drugmart. It's a new attempt for me to raise funds online. Please support my effort. For those of you living in the Esten subdivision and some streets in the older section of town, my appology for not meeting you at your door this year.
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 and men dying unnecessarily. It’s #TimeToSeeRed.
Funding for research is needed for this crucial cause. Please donate to save lives. .
Thank you for supporting me! Clarence Baarda
