Like so many others in Canada, my immediate family has been touched by heart disease and stroke. It's a life changing experience for many, that we can help make less prevalent and less damaging with research and advocacy. That's why I'm participating in the first-ever Manulife Heart & Stroke Virtual Ride for Heart.
Furthermore, 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.
You can help those at greater risk due to COVID-19 and your donation will help fund life-saving research breakthroughs.
Help me fund this important work and meet my fundraising goal.
