Heart disease and other heart-related issues have touched many of Goodfellow Cleaners’ customers, friends and families.
Right now, Charles Goodfellow, the owner of Goodfellow Cleaners and his team are ready to give with their hearts. They are raising money and awareness for the Ottawa Heart Institute. For Charles, giving back to the Institute is personal. This is his story.
“I lost two very close friends in the past few years due to separate heart-related issues. Both of these guys were in good shape and under the age of 46. They played hockey, went to the gym… one was a marathon runner. Their deaths happened without any warning. Their deaths hit me hard since they came right at the same time as I was just diagnosed with a heart condition.
I’m fortunate that I have received the very best of care and monitoring from everyone at the Heart Institute. They are amazing. Now I’m actually in the best health of my life – but they still monitor me. … I have such respect and a deep commitment and devotion to doing whatever we can as a business to help.”
All of these elements combined make Charles and his team of 25 employees both sensitive and active in reaching out to customers impacted by heart health. It’s also the reason they are ready to offer up discounts to those who donate during ‘heart month’.
