Thanks for taking a look at my page. I'd like to tell you why I have decided to canvass and what your donation does.
Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. I want to help change this. That’s why I’m canvassing to create more survivors.
All of the money I raise will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, where they’ll use it to develop life-saving treatments that bring hope to heart disease and stroke patients. In the last year alone, the Heart and Stroke Foundation has helped create 165,000 survivors of heart disease and stroke.
Our family, like many families, has been directly impacted by heart disease and we have also lost a close family friend to a stroke.
Much like a stroke, the signs of heart disease aren’t always obvious and in many cases the first sign of trouble is unfortunately also the last.
I set an initial goal to raise $1000 but have since raised that target to $2000. This is Heart & Stroke Month and for a limited time your donation will be doubled by Shoppers Drug Mart so any amount, no matter how small will help.
Close to 8 in 10 cases of premature heart disease and stroke are preventable. Further research and education can not only save lives but improve the quality of life for those who have been impacted by heart disease, a heart attack or a stroke.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today.
It's only with your help that we can continue to fund this vital research, and return more survivors home to their loved ones.
Thank you so much for your support.
