After a heart event, you and your loved ones may feel overwhelmed and scared. You know a lifestyle change is necessary, but don't know where to start.
Or you may simply be interested in staying healthy and preventing heart disease.
I hope you'll share your thoughts and ideas about the site. And if you're living with heart disease, share your story for the benefit of others.
I understand what it's like to have to change your thinking and your lifestyle... because I've been there. I had a 90% blockage in 2004, and an aortic valve replacement in 2011.
Here's a video of a presentation I gave to the Ski For Heart event at the Chateau Lake Louise in January 2013. I talk about my experience with heart disease, how awareness likely saved my life, and the important research that the Heart & Stroke Foundation supports.
What our site visitors are saying...
"I am sure I will return to this site often."
"The website has a lot of useful info! Thanks so much!"
"Great job on this site and congrats on all the good work you are doing to help save and enhance people's lives."
"Heart health is a marathon, not a sprint. In other words, it's what you do over the long term that really counts. Don't worry about one particular point in the race when you may not have stayed the course. Just get back on track and keep going."
