Looking for the perfect Valentine this year? BIFMC is launching its first ever “Help-A-Heart” Valentine’s Day Fund to assist the Clinic in raising money to support their Cardiovascular Health Program.
For a $5 minimum, a donation will be made in honor of your Valentine: A personalized valentine will be mailed to the recipient(s) of your choosing, stating that a contribution to fight pulmonary embolism and heart disease was made in his or her name – just in time for February 14th.
According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, affecting people of all ages and backgrounds.
All proceeds from the campaign will go directly to support our cardiovascular health initiatives and stock medical supplies that keep our uninsured patients on Johns, James, and Wadmalaw Islands healthy – from routinely used items such as echocardiogram electrodes, chest razors, stethoscopes, and will also fund the purchase of a new echocardiogram machine.
Those who make a donation to the Help-A-Heart fund can select the item they wish to help supply to the Clinic, provide the mailing address of their loved one, and a personalized Valentines Card will be mailed by February 14th stating that the donation was made in his or her honor.
For those who wish to support the Clinic and raise awareness for Cardiovascular Health without submitting a donation, an “e-mail only” option can be selected where your Valentine recipient will receive an e-gram featuring heart-friendly recipes.
