Hi friends - thanks for taking a look at my Heart & Stroke Canvass page! I'm doing this for the (n+1)th time, because I've had a number of friends who've either died from heart disease or stroke, or have been deeply affected by it.I want to reduce the number of casualties!
Each year, Heart & Stroke canvassers across Canada raise funds for life-saving heart and stroke research.This year’s campaign carries a powerful message about women's heart and brain health. It’s #TimeToSeeRed, because:
- Heart disease and stroke are the No.1 cause of premature death for women in Canada
- Heart attack symptoms go unrecognized in 53% of women
- Nearly 70% of heart disease and stroke clinical research focuses on men
The numbers say it all. Women are under-researched, under-diagnosed and under-treated, so women are dying where their lives could be saved. It’s time to close the research gap and stop these deaths, while maintaining our efforts for men. By making a donation, you’ll become part of the push for change – shining a spotlight on the inequities and fueling the scientific discovery and collaborations needed to save the lives of all.
Please help my fundraising goal by making a donation today.Just go to my personal fundraising page via the Link below, and support this cause that is close to my heart. With your support we can bring more survivors home to their loved ones!
