Welcome to Pat Patterson's fundraising page.
Thanks for taking a look at my page. I'd like to tell you why I have decided to fundraise and what your donation does.
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. It has impacted my family and maybe yours too. In the past year I have been diagnosed with an arrythmia of my heart. That grabs one's attention.
Now, I am even more committed to raising funds for research, especially for results that are gender based. Women are under- diagnosed when it comes to heart disease. They suffer 1/3 more strokes than men. They present different symptoms of heart attack than men. Risks like pregnancy and menopause create different risks for women.
The neeed for research is critical. New information will make a huge difference when it reaches the paramedics, emergency room professionals and clinicians in their care of women's hearts and brains.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today.
Thank you so much for your support.
