Honorary Chair,
Heart & Stroke Canvass

“Not enough women recognize the signs of heart attack and know what to do. My mom was one of them.”

Joannie Rochette’s mother, Thérèse, died suddenly of a heart attack just two days before Joannie won a bronze medal in figure skating at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

As Honorary Chair for Heart & Stroke Canvass, Joannie is working to do everything she can so other families don’t go through that shock and pain. She is urging Canadians to join and support Heart & Stroke Canvass.

Join Joannie to share the signs of a heart attack and raise funds for research that helps save lives.
