Many of us have seen the devastation caused by heart disease and stroke, and that's why we are working with Heart & Stroke Canvass to raise funds and deliver life-saving information, for the 9th year in a row. Thank you for your support in the past!
We're sending this to you so that you can learn and share the signs of a heart attack and stroke, because it could save the life of someone you love. We're also hoping you'll donate to our 2020 fundraiser; in Canada, one person dies every 5 minutes from heart disease, stroke or vascular cognitive impairment. We must do something right now.
Your donation will help all people in Canada, but it’s especially important for women, who face even more dire statistics:
#1 cause of premature death in women in Canada is heart disease and stroke.
53% of women who experience heart attack symptoms have them go unrecognized.
2/3 of all heart disease and stroke clinical research focuses on men.
To close the research gap, Heart & Stroke has pledged to double the dollars invested in research for women. We need your help to save lives and create more moments with the people we love. Support our fundraiser below:
