The best heart care starts with the best diagnostics.

Help save a life by giving today

1 in 4 Canadians will be diagnosed with heart disease…

Thanks to you, the thousands of cardiac patients who come to the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute every year have access to a level of care that’s hard to find anywhere else.

That’s why we play a leading role in the cardiac wellbeing of over seven million Canadians across two-thirds of the country, including the northern territories.

Especially for patients who have run out of options. They come to the Maz as a last resort – desperate to survive.

Like Jolissa Doerksen…

… a young mother who contracted a deadly virus while preparing for a fun family camping trip. By the time she arrived at the Maz, Jolissa’s condition was “beyond critical” according to Dr. Gurmeet Singh, a cardiac intensivist who heads the life support program at the Maz. Dr. Singh’s team had no time to spare. Jolissa’s life was on the line but thanks to our community of committed donors, they had the most advanced technology and equipment to work with and were able to save her life.

Within two weeks, Jolissa was on the road to recovery. Within two years, she gave birth to her second beautiful baby girl.

Jolissa’s terrifying health scare was strictly by accident. That the Maz was able to save her life was anything but.
