Giving every woman
with heart disease

a fighting chance

Help us beat women’s cardiovascular disease.

Did you know?

  • Every 20 minutes a woman dies from cardiovascular disease in Canada
  • Globally, one in three women will die as a result of heart disease or stroke
  • Heart attacks go unrecognized in women up to 54% of the time (women present different symptoms from men)

These numbers need to change.

Your donation to Calgary Health Foundation is helping to support cardiovascular research.

Your support will help us
beat women’s cardiovascular 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 cardiovascular health. This research focuses on sex and gender-related factors when it comes to cardiovascular disease.

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

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

With your help, we can create breakthroughs
in women’s cardiovascular disease.
