I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for the 2020 Ride for Heart on June 7th. This year will be a virtual ride I plan on doing the 75 km on a route other than the DVP lol.
I work in cardiac procedure as an RN and have had an active involvement personally in cardiac treatment as a patient, family member and friend.
Have seen HUGE gains in treatment and research over the "ahem" 30 years in my career.!
This year I am very thankful and riding for a special colleague and cardiologist, who himself suffered multiple cardiac arrests 2 years ago and is alive today thanks to the advancements of cardiac treatment . He would not be here today if it wasnt for fundraising thru Heart and Stroke to fund the advancement in cardiac care research.
Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved.
With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as 5 years.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
June Thomas, Cardiac Cathlab RN
