Know Your Risks

Women’s hearts are different from men’s – so are their risks, symptoms and outcomes. Too few of us are aware of these dangers.

Act now.

#getHeartChecked. Use our guides to remind you of the numbers you need to know and questions to ask your doctor about women’s heart disease. Carry them with you so you know the red flag symptoms of an immediate female heart attack – and can act if you need to.

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.
