People living with heart disease and stroke are at an increased risk of becoming very ill and dying if they contract COVID-19, and emerging data confirms the virus can damage an otherwise healthy heart and impact the brain. Funding for research is more critical than ever. That is why we are participating in the first-ever Manulife Heart & Stroke Virtual Ride for Heart.
In our personal family our Mother has congestive heart failure as well as a pacemaker and a nephew who has a congenital heart defect who has recieved open heart surgery three times.
I also work on the Regional Stoke Unit at Grand River Hospital. There I witness daily the impact a stroke has on my patients as well as their families.
You can help those at greater risk due to COVID-19 and your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs.
Help us fund this important research and meet our fundraising goal.
