The month of February is when many hearts go pitter patter, as they celebrate Valentine ’s Day. However, in Canada, heart disease and stroke silence one of these hearts every seven minutes. Practically, no one is immune, as over 90% of the population has at least one risk factor. During February, the Heart and Stroke foundations, raises awareness and funds to help combat these conditions. Help your spouse, parents, children and loved ones, by raising awareness about this killer. This special month be sure to protect your heart both figuratively and literally, after all hearts are never meant to be broken.
