Raising money for research on heart disease, the #1 killer in the United States
CLEVELAND, Feb. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the number one killer of women and men in the United States, causing one in every five deaths. For the second year running, in celebration of Valentine’s Day and Heart Month, Cleveland Clinic and American Greetings are proud to collaborate in ways that may improve cardiovascular health everywhere by offering a selection of beautiful Creatacard™ virtual greetings cards for those who donate to support Cleveland Clinic’s cardiovascular research.
With each $20 donation, individuals will have the opportunity to send personalized Valentine’s Day Creatacards, designed by artists at American Greetings, to all the loved ones on their list. Creatacard™ is an easy-to-create custom virtual greeting card that replicates the most-loved features of paper cards such as adding a personal message, signing your name, and including photos.
One hundred percent of the money raised will be donated to cardiovascular research through Cleveland Clinic, which is aimed at furthering research to discover new treatments and identify preventive measures that will stop heart disease before it begins. Donations can be made at https://give.ccf.org/valentinesday24.
Since 1995, Cleveland Clinic has ranked number one in cardiac care, according to U.S. News & World Report. Patients travel from all 50 states and 136 countries to Cleveland Clinic’s Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute for expert care and exceptional outcomes.
