On June 7, 2020 I will be walking to honor the late sweet, happy, and hilarious Howie Richer. He suffered from a heart attack at age 40, and against all odds, he survived. Howie later developed atrial fibrillation, angina, and eventually congestive heart failure. He was truly a bright light to everyone who crossed his path. He lived life to its full potential despite the health related challenges he faced. We miss him beyond words. This foundation is very close to my heart, as I also lost my beloved grandfather, Ted Sheres, to cardiac disease in 2002. Please join me in raising money for Heart and Stroke research. You can also join me on the walk! xx
I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for the 2020 Manulife Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart on June 7. 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.
