Everyone I know has come in contact with a friend or family member who suffers from heart disease of some kind. My wife Sue had open heart surgery 7 years ago, and thanks to the doctors and nurses at Southlake Hospital, she is doing great.
When it comes to heart disease and stroke, our genes should not be our destiny. That’s why I’m fundraising for the 2020 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 7. Your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs and will give us more moments with those we love.
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 five years. However, this life saving research is expensive and requires extensive fund raising activity.
So that's why I am excited to participate in the Ride for Heart. Help us fund this important research and meet the larger fundraising goal. Give a little or give a lot... I appreciate your support.
