I volunteer for Heart and Stroke because women need to stop dying unecessarily. Sex and gender blinders have caused too many women's lives to be cut short, including my grandmother. She was really healthy her whole life and passed away from a sudden stroke 2 years ago. She had a delay going into the hospital because her symptoms were not seen as severe and her pain diminished.
Women's heart and brain health is still widely misunderstood, not ony are women under-aware of risks of heart disease and stroke, but the healthcare system lacks the proper diagnostic tools and therapies to properly diagnose and treat them. Two-thirds of heart disease and stroke clinical research still focuses on men, making it difficult to find insights on the effects or risks of diagnostic tools and therapies on women.
I fundraise for heart and stroke so that our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and children will have better diagnostic tools and therapies.
Donate to my page and I would love to invite you to a group HIIT class, taught by yours truly :)
