February is here, again! It is Heart and Stroke Month-what used to be a very busy time at 10 Gore St. W.
Thanks for taking a look at my page. I'd like to tell you why I am canvassing again - now about year twenty as I canvassed door to door in Perth as a teenager, at Queens and then rejoined once the kids were a bit older. This is my second year of canvassing online and thought I would try it again this year.
As all of you know Heart and Stroke has been an important cause for our family since John was born with his serious heart condition. We feel very fortunate that we had him for 41 years but it was not long enough. I am hoping that through research other families will be helped and we will have more survivors. Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women. I want to help change this.
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.
If you already donate yearly at your door, that is great. If you are a canvasser, that is terrific. If you are able to make an online donation it would be greatly appreciated by many.
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.
