McMaster united with Muslim community

Acts of terrorism must end against all religions. Today it is against Islam tomorrow it may be another. If we do not stand up in solidarity against these acts we will fail as a society. Canada can do better and this starts by standing up to wrong. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.

We must stand together and actively safeguard against the attitudes and conditions that can breed hate, bias, and extremism.

#KnowtheFacts
❤️ The most common CHD is referred to as a VSD, or Ventrical Septal Defect. If you're born with a VSD, there is a small hole in the wall that separates the two lower chambers of the heart. What can make matters worse, is a VSD can also be one of other heart complications or defects. There is no cure for CHDs, but together we can help families navigate their journey. Share this post to help spread awareness about CHDs.

This makes my heart happy

Hi, My name is Homayra Ahmed And I am the Founder and President of Hope for Hearts.

I am currently in Nursing Level 4 (soon to be registered nurse)! I started this club last year with the intention on raising awareness for congenital heart defects after my personal struggle with dextrocardia. I wanted to lend peer support to other McMaster students who may be feeling isolated with cardiology experiences and congenital heart defects.

It can have a large emotional and physical impact dealing with a heart condition and hence why I decided to start the club and fundraise for McMaster Children's hospital and SickKids.

Due to COVID I plan to raise the new SickKids hospital. I love advocating for heart related issues and if you have a story to tell let me know so we can share on our blog page 🙂

Fun Fact: Dextrocardia is when your heart is on the right side so technically my whole body is flipped 😮 & I love mountains & travel

Welcome to our returning Executive member and promoted Vice President ! Maleeha Anwar

Hi everyone! I’m a 4th year commerce student studying at McMaster. I joined Hope for Hearts to help raise awareness and help those with congenital heart defects. Last year we were able to raise hundreds of dollars for the McMaster Children’s Hospital Pediatric Cardiology unit with the help of our amazing team and various community sponsors. As your Vice President for the 2020-2021 year, I hope to continue to gain success with our events and expand our reach even further. I am honoured to have been given this opportunity and hope to make a difference in the lives of those living with heart conditions.

Welcome to our VP Social Fatima Shafique !

Hi everyone! I'm a third-year integrated biomedical engineering and health sciences (ibiomed) student. I'm passionate to join this club since it permits me to help raise awareness about congenital heart issues which not many people are knowledgeable about. I am determined to serve the community, I find myself fortunate that I'm contributing to this cause. It gives me a perfect opportunity to magnify its importance and to serve those who are affected by CHD, battling for life. It gives me a chance to make someone's life better and help those experiencing CHD.

Hello everyone, my name is Aqsa and I am the VP of events for McMaster’s Hope for Hearts this year! I am in my second year of Honours Life Sciences. I joined Hope for Hearts as congenital heart defects and problems related to the heart in general are so prevalent in our society, yet many people are unaware of them. I joined this club so I can help raise awareness on this topic as well as help raise funds for individuals impacted by heart defects. I look forward to working with everyone this year to make a positive impact on the lives of many!

Welcome to our VP Marketing Milena Gallucci !

I am a third year student in the Honours Biology & PNB (BioPsych) Program. This year I have the role of VP Marketing with McMaster Hope for Hearts. I decided to join this club because my family knows someone who has bravely undergone several open heart surgeries as a child at SickKids Hospital. I am glad to be able to help the club raise awareness for congenital heart defects among the McMaster student community!

Patients with underlying heart disease are at a particularly high risk of complications from COVID-19.

"COVID-19 has a special affinity for the heart, commonly resulting in infection, inflammation, and damage of heart tissue,” says Dr. Harriette Van Spall, cardiologist at Hamilton Health Sciences and Associate Professor of Medicine at McMaster University.

Did you know that 1 in 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect? That makes it the most common birth defect in the world. This defect results in congenital heart disease (CHD) which requires lifelong, specialized cardiac care; despite monumental advancements in medicine, CHD cannot be 'cured', only repaired. This #WorldHeartDay let's raise awareness about CHD. Share this post and visit cchaforlife.org to get more information on living with #CHD from birth through adulthood.

Upload your videos now ! Fundraiser for McMaster children’s hospital. You may be wondering why they require funding- there is a set cost the federal government provides hospitals and mostly covers the pay for the hospital staff etc. Every year the hospitals do a fundraiser and have to hit a target so they can buy necessary equipment for the hospital (supply budget) and rely on community donors for this! Please donate !

Thanks to our friends at Tim Hortons, you can earn a gift card by reaching a specific fundraising level during the MacKids Walk & Wheel Mascot Dance Challenge.

$300-$499 raised receives a $10 Tim Hortons gift card
$500-$749 raised receives a $15 Tim Hortons gift card
$750-$999 raised receives a $20 Tim Hortons gift card
$1000+ raised receives a $25 Tim Hortons gift card

Gift cards are awarded based on cumulative total for individual fundraisers based on total funds received by Sunday, June 21 at 11:59 p.m.

About

Do you or someone you love have a rare congenital heart defect? Are you interested in healing hearts? Are you interested in raising awareness on heart defects? If so, you have come to the correct page. I have always been passionate about congenital heart particularly because I have dextrocardia with situs inversus totalis which is where the heart is on the right side instead of

the left and all the organs are reversed. I was amazed at how little awareness there is on my condition and as a result I created the club McMaster Hope 4 Hearts.

Through the help of this years executive team and members we aim to fundraise for various organizations such as heart research institutes and life changing children’s surgeries. This page will contain updates from meetings and upcoming events so stay tuned!

February is Heart Month! ❤️The heart is a vital organ and unfortunately it is the 2nd leading cause of death among Canadians! This is something that can be prevented with adequate resources provided to the population.
