Giving Tuesday is a global movement dedicated to giving back. After the excitement of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, comes Giving Tuesday. Charities, Communities, Businesses and Individuals just like you have the opportunity to give back and make a big impact.
The season of giving is upon us, and what better way to spread some holiday cheer than to raise awareness for CHD (Congenital Heart Disease), the number one birth defect affecting Canadians of all ages.
Thank you to Marilyn Gladu, MP for supporting Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) awareness in Canada and Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance.
By reading your statement in the House of Commons today and recognizing February 14th as Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) Awareness Day in Canada, you help increase awareness and advocacy for the more than 250,000 Canadians living with Congenital Heart Disease, many who require lifelong specialized care.
Marilyn Gladu is the MP for Sarnia-Lambton and serves as the Shadow Minister for Health in the Official Opposition
During Heart Month 2019, we highlighted CHD stories of our members from across Canada. Thank to everyone for their stories of strength, perseverance and hope and for sharing their experience with the community of CCHA and anyone who has been touched by Congenital Heart Disease.
