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.
My personal story goes back more than seven years now. At that time, it was discovered that I had a congenital heart condition called an atrial sptal defect, causing inadequate oxygen blood flow and symptoms to that. Without intervention this defect could have potentially lead to a heart attack or stroke. Research into better, less evasive, treatment methods made it possible for me to have this hole repaired using a minimally invasive procedure, and a short recovery time. I am now able to strive to achieve a fitter life, more fully experiencing physical activities including long walks and golfing without tiredness or shortness of breath.
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.
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.
