About The Heart Truth Fashion Show
“We know that heart disease and stroke remain the leading cause of death for women in Canada1 – more than all cancers combined,” says Bobbe Wood, CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. “And this year, we’ve enlisted a few good men to walk our runway, sharing ‘The Heart Truth’ with men across Canada to help protect the lives of women they love.”
“We’re reaching Canadian women with this lifesaving message: it’s time to take charge of your heart health”, says Wood. “Make healthy lifestyle choices, monitor your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and advocate for the care you need from your doctor. And to Canadian men, we say support the women you love to protect their heart health.”
