About Us

Once believed to be a ‘man’s disease’, heart disease now kills more women than men, and more women than all cancers combined. 42% of women heart attack survivors suffer a second attack and die within a year of the first; and 46% become disabled, living in chronic pain and poor health. The cost to the Canadian economy more than $22 billion annually.
