Please join us for a celebration of an exciting milestone - 20 years since Dave's heart transplant! We will have lots of food and activities for kids, you only need bring your best Dave stories, and the more embarassing the better! Just so we have numbers for food, please rsvp to this event if you
will be attending.
At this party, we will be collecting donations for the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation. on Jan. 23rd, we will be attending their Ski for Heart event in Lake Louise and will be turning in the funds then. If I can manage to get Dave onto cross country skis, I will post photos!
The Heart & Stroke Foundation has funded a huge amount of research that has directly impacted Dave's health as a cardiac transplant recipient. Donor dollars have led to improved diagnostic imaging technology, improved medications, and improved training for medical professionals; all of which has helped to keep Dave alive and kicking for the past 20 years. Currently, the Heart & Stroke Foundation is funding research aimed at cracking the genetic code of heart disease, and stroke in order to make personalized treatments possible in as little as 5 years from now. With breakthroughs like this just on the horizon, it is more important than ever to help support the great work they are doing.
Please join Dave and what he hopes will be hundreds of his friends, students, former students, and colleagues for an evening of fun and fundraising!
