Why Should I Give?

Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in Canada, taking a life every five minutes. It has stolen people’s quality of life and has taken away our mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is changing this.

We are changemakers and innovators who are passionate about working together to fight heart disease and improve heart health.

Your gift makes an immediate impact in Calgary and beyond by giving us the tools we need to make a difference.

 

What Will Be the Impact of My Gift?

Cardiovascular disease claims the life of a Canadian woman every 20 minutes, yet their symptoms are often overlooked. The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is tackling gaps in women’s cardiovascular research and care with the Women’s Cardiovascular Health Initiative. But we are looking to do more. We are currently raising money to recruit a global leader in women’s cardiovascular research and to open a clinic that will care for local women who are at risk of developing cardiovascular conditions. Our goal is to keep families together longer by improving the odds for women locally and globally through cardiovascular research, training and care.

Medicine is often a one-size-fits-all approach, but patients have unique, individualized needs. The Precision Medicine Initiative is tackling this issue head on. We are raising money for scholarships, grants and personnel to support research and innovation with the goal of customizing care to meet the individual needs of our patients.

Research holds the key to better cardiovascular health, but it takes an average of 17 years for new research to impact patients. The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is working to provide patients with tomorrow’s health today by accelerating the speed of health-care innovation. But we need your help. We are currently raising an innovation fund to enable our members to conduct life-changing research. 

Although cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer globally for both men and women, 80 per cent of is preventable through a healthy lifestyle. The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is working hard to find the right solutions for the right patients at the right time, but we can’t do it alone. Help us raise funds for scholarships, grants and for our community outreach programs and help us open doors for cardiovascular health.
