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.
We all have friends and family affected by heart disease and stroke. My mother, Alice, was a long-time survivor of both. Her courage and determination together with evolving medical treatments and family support helped her to live many years longer than her own mother who died of heart disease at the age of 57 in the 1940s.
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.
This year's campaign is placing a special emphasis on the need for more awareness about the impact of heart disease and stroke on women. 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.
