Are you searching for the perfect Valentine's gift? Help a heart – literally.
With a donation to the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC), you can send a Valentine's message of love online or through post – and every dollar supports the Ted Rogers Centre of Excellence in Heart Function at the PMCC. The Centre specializes in replacement strategies for advanced heart failure, including mechanical circulatory support and heart transplantation.
"We find that people are now looking for more significant and meaningful ways to give seasonal gifts," said Louise Aspin, Vice President of Advancement, Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation. "Many of us have been impacted by heart disease, so we have created this fun and impactful way to support heart disease research while telling your loved ones how much they mean to you."
