Welcome to our fundraising page!
Please join me by making a donation! I am fundraising for VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation, in particular for SCAD research.
VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation is Vancouver Coastal Health’s primary philanthropic partner, raising funds for specialized adult health services and research for all British Columbians. We partner with donors to drive innovation and sustainable health care at VGH & UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehab Centre, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and Vancouver Community Health Services.
SCAD is the abbreviation for Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection. It is a rare condition that occurs when there is a tear in the wall of an artery supplying the heart. This can lead to a heart attack, as the blood supply to the heart is interrupted.
I have recently had my third SCAD heart attack and am now excited to do something to help prevent this condition in the future.
Thankyou for joining my team!
