Giving every woman
with heart disease

a fighting chance

This holiday season, you can help us beat women’s cardiac disease.

Did you know?

Every 20 MINUTES a
woman dies from cardiac
disease in Canada

Heart attacks go
unrecognized in women
up to 54% OF THE TIME,
women present different
symptoms from men

Globally, ONE IN THREE
women will die as a result of
heart disease or stroke

These numbers need to change.

This holiday season, your gift to Calgary Health Foundation will help fund transformative clinical care and innovative research to better understand the prevention and treatment of women’s cardiovascular disease throughout the lifespan.

Your support will help us beat women’s cardiac disease, one heart at a time.

When it comes to women’s heart health, one size doesn’t fit all.

Our world-class researchers and clinicians are working tirelessly to change the future of women’s cardiac health. Our team of researchers at the Libin Cardiovascular Institute at Foothills Medical Centre are focusing on sex and gender-related factors when it comes to cardiac disease.

Female-specific factors such as hormonal contraception use, complications of pregnancy, menopause and postmenopausal hormone therapy all influence risk of hypertension.

Your gift today will help fund innovative research to better understand prevention and treatment of women’s cardiac disease from infancy through to adulthood.

With your help this holiday season, we can create breakthroughs in women’s cardiac disease.
