In February, hearts surround us. While the ones in our chests continue to pound, Valentine’s Day festivities greet us with plenty of chocolate hearts, toy hearts and cards with cartoon hearts. Although many of us enjoy this Hallmark holiday for the fun of it, it remains important for everyone to continually focus on the health of his or her ticker.
With that in mind, allow this to be a friendly reminder that February is also Heart and Stroke Awareness Month in Canada.
