Two years ago our family discovered that I am to be blamed for our daughter's, likely hereditery, supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). I was lucky enough to have a successfull ablation and my arythmia is nearly gone. Shelly, however, continues to have these episodes.
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 5 years.
I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why on June 4th I will be joining CPA Canada Team on a 75km cycling route for the 2017 Ride for Heart. Our efforts will bring much needed attention and funding to this cause. Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
Shelly and so many others would greatly appreciate your help with our fundraising goal. So please make a donation today.
P.S. Huge thanks to all who donated. You are definitely a VIP to me and my family.
