Cardiovascular disease is near and dear to my heart.
- My granny died unexpectedly at aged 69 from a heart attack.
- My favourite uncle passed away at aged 59 and
- My mom and dad both died from heart-related causes.
What can I do to change the family history narrative for heart disease and stroke?
Step 1: Eat better (sadly less ice cream and dim sum)
Step 2: Exercise
Step 3: Raise money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation to help fund life-saving research.
So I decided to get my groove on and participate in the 2020 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 7 (addressing Steps 1 and 2).
If you could assist with Step 3, researchers predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease within as little as five years.
Please help me fund this important research and meet my fundraising goal.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
