Heart disease is the second leading cause of death in Canada.1
Many forms of cardiovascular disease are preventable and congenital heart disease is largely treatable with proper lifelong care. However, there are thousands of Canadians who are battling heart diseases and the effects of stroke.
- 1 in 12 Canadian adults age 20 and over live with diagnosed heart disease.1
- 250,000 Canadians live with congenital heart disease.2
- 750,000 Canadian adults over age 20 live with the effects of a stroke.3
- Every hour, about 12 Canadian adults die from a heart disease.1
The heart is the cornerstone of our entire body. It’s time to fight back and beat heart disease.
