Many of you will know that I work for Heart & Stroke as a Health Promoter. I started working there almost 2 years to the day after losing my dad suddenly to undiagnosed heart disease. I believe in the work of the organization. Many don't realize that the bulk of the funds raised get channeled back into research--research that can, and has, saved lives.
I only ask that you consider donating if you have the means, and believe in the work. I'm committing to giving back to you in the form of information--information I wish I'd known sooner, and want all of my loved ones to know...
Until the end of February, I'll be sharing public posts with information that you can share via your social media network. If you can't support Heart & Stroke with a donation this month, please consider sharing this information as a way of giving back to the cause.
Heart and Stroke is putting a big push on to raise funds for research on women’s heart and brain health. This is because:
- 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
Because of this, many of my posts will focus on information for women!
Thanks in advance for supporting Heart & Stroke this month, and throughout the year...
