Heart Research Australia's National Wear Red Day 2019's slogan is 'Keeping families together for longer'. Funds raised will provide seed funding to Heart Research Australia's innovative researchers, turning ideas (first stage research) into reality, for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.
Heart Research Australia has partnered with Everyday Hero to enable crowdfunding through online fundraising through friends, family and colleagues. If fundraising's not your thing, it costs nothing to wear red this Valentine's Day as a symbol of honouring someone close to your heart and in support of Heart Research Australia
I always wear a Red blouse on Valentine's Day. My 'other half' has cardiac disease, managed by his wonderful Cardiologist.
Our youngest son is born on Valentine's Day - his grandfather was named 'Valentine' but we did not carry on the name. Valentine also had heart disease, died at the age of 40. Sadly the genes have been passed down. Thank goodness for researchers who investigate and find ways of treating this condition.
