Together, we can fix hearts!

From November 24 to December 24, the Fix-A-Heart campaign at your local Canadian Tire stores aims to raise $50,000 towards a new C-arm at Royal Jubilee Hospital. Your donation to Fix-a-Heart will be matched by Canadian Tire.

When an Island resident experiences chest pain or shortness of breath, they are often referred to the Royal Jubilee Hospital heart catheterization laboratory. There, a cardiac team will use a C-arm to obtain high-definition images of their heart and blood vessels ― a diagnostic test called an angiogram. The images show the location and size of any blockages, which enable the cardiac team to determine the best life-saving treatment approach. In many cases, the team will perform an immediate procedure such as a balloon angioplasty or stenting, again using the real-time images from the C-arm to guide their meticulous tasks. This creates almost instant relief for cardiac patients.

Make a donation at the Hillside, View Royal or Royal Oak Canadian Tire store to support cardiac care in our community.
