As you have no doubt heard me say before, I volunteer every year to encourage my friends and family to donate to Heart & Stroke.
Heart and brain health are important to all of us, and as I get older that gets more clear every year.
This year’s campaign carries a powerful message:
- 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.
Please donate this year and help to resolve this inequity through supporting life-saving and life-improving research.
Thanks for your support!
