Fairwinds Lodge will be the host site for this Wednesday’s National Heart & Stroke Awareness Day in Sarnia, an informative, interactive event for individuals living with or at risk of heart attacks or strokes.
Local health care providers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information on various services. Find out the risk factors of heart attacks and learn about the valuable resources available in the community.
Community Relations Director Kerry Belliveau has been coordinating these types of resourceful awareness days at Fairwinds Lodge for the last three years with great participation from the local community.
“We are all in this together. Providing one central location for those needing to gather valuable information for themselves or loved ones is the key to the success of these programs,” said Belliveau. “We are able to bring skilled and knowledgeable agencies from the Sarnia Lambton area together – it is a one stop, interactive environment to learn and be aware. Information booths are set up in the atrium, with presentations throughout the day. We encourage everyone to come and be a part of something so valuable and local community based.”

Amber, Devon and Hudsyn are shining examples of the strength it takes to make it through such adversity. The Sarnia Lambton Heart & Stroke Foundation has been a big part of their lives already, this will be a lifelong relationship that needs our ongoing support.”
