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. In October 1987 I lost my Dad, Bill Durkee, very suddenly due to a heart attack. He was a wonderful husband, father and friend to those that knew and loved him. I still think of him often and wonder what he would have thought of the things that we take for granted like computers, cell phones, facebook, etc. He liked technology and I can imagine him using all of these things to the fullest.
Dad did not get the chance to see his grandchildren born and grow up to be wonderful people, so in his memory, and for all those that have also left us due to heart and stroke issues, I want to take the time to help to create more survivors by contributing to this campaign.
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.
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.
Susan (aka Sue & Susie) Durkee- Bowers
