Welcome to my Heart & Stroke Canvass page!
Every year, Heart & Stroke canvassers across Canada raise funds for life-saving heart and stroke research. This year’s campaign carries a powerful message: When it comes to women’s heart and stroke things need to change, because:
1. Heart disease and stroke are the #1 cause of premature death for women in Canada
2. Heart attack symptoms go unrecognized in 53% of women 3. 2/3 of heart disease and stroke clinical research focuses on men
4. My mother survived her first stroke and thrived another 5 years, due to good care of which we need more.
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.
Funding for this kind of research is critical.
Thank you for opening your 'heart' and supporting this cause.
