Having recently lost our own mother in October 2009 after a lengthy and debilitating stroke, we understand firsthand how awful this illness is and how preventable it could have been. We know that our family is only one among many that have been struck by this. Every 7 minutes, someone dies from heart disease or stroke and heart disease and stroke is responsible for one out of three deaths per year. We are proud to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario and hope that you will join us in this wonderful cause. We hope to see you there and raise a glass to your health! A glass of red wine from time to time is good for your heart health!
