Last year my close friend and the best man at my wedding suffered a Heart Attack at the age of 41, which is way to early in life…Kyle had always led a healthy lifestyle and if you were to do a poll of all our friends – he would have been the last person anyone would have picked to have a Heart Attack. Thanks to his wife Trish and the First Responders in Bedford, NS he was fortunate enough to survive and not suffer any side effects after being in a coma for a couple of days following the incident. After losing my Grandfather suddenly to a Stroke back in 2002, and almost losing my best friend to a Heart Attack, when Kyle told me he wanted to enter a team in the Heart & Stroke’s Hockey Heroes Weekend in Halifax, I told him I was in and the fundraising that went along with it (I hope I am a better fundraiser than hockey player!).
With that, I am reaching out today to all my friends and family for your support in raising funds in support of the Heart & Stroke. The Heart & Stroke leads the way in protecting the health of millions at risk of heart disease and stroke. Close to 70,000 Canadians die every year from heart disease and stroke - that's one life taken every 7 minutes. Your gift will positively impact the lives of those affected by heart disease and stroke.
