A national devastation
Every month, 5,500 Canadians die from heart disease and stroke, devastating families and loved ones.
New threats due to COVID-19
COVID-19 makes people living with heart disease and stroke much more vulnerable to health risks. Alarmingly, mounting evidence shows COVID-19 can damage otherwise healthy hearts and brains — making the need for research significantly more urgent.
Saving lives starts with research
Every month, 750 top researchers funded by Heart & Stroke are edging closer to big breakthroughs that will save lives in Canada.
Researchers need your help to push closer to the finish line. We urgently need 750 new monthly donors on our team to help our researchers find breakthroughs more quickly. Join us, and be part of the Breakthrough Fund.Become a monthly donor
