Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death for men and women. Because of amazing research over the past 60 years, the death rate from these diseases has decreased by 75 per cent! Having said that, like many of you, I know someone who is or has had to deal with the effects of heart disease and stroke. With an aging population and increasing risks in all ages, we have to keep the research momentum going.
That’s why I joined the Alberta Board of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and have decided to take part in Ski For Heart. I believe that research is the key to saving lives from heart disease and stroke, and creating a healthier future for all of us. Plus, it’s an investment in innovation that will help to lift the careers of new scientists in Canada, which is home to many leaders in heart and stroke research.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal by making a donation today in support of life-saving
research. Together we’re making a difference, and giving people longer, more fulfilling lives. Thank you so much for your support!
