On Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 I unexpectedly lost my uncle to a heart attack. On June 7, I will be riding in the 50km bike ride alongside my family members in our second Manulife Heart and Stroke Ride for Heart.
When it comes to heart disease and stroke, our genes should not be our destiny. That’s why I’m fundraising for the 2019 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.
Please help my family and I fund this important research and meet our fundraising goal.
