Go Red for Women

GoRedForWomenToday is the ten-year anniversary of the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day.  Every year on February 1st, thousands of people across the U.S. participate by wearing red to increase public awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of women (even more deadly than all forms of cancer).  The AHA reported that this disease claims the lives of almost 500,000 American women each year.  Having lost several relatives to heart disease, I am showing my support today by wearing red and spreading the news.

For more information, visit the Go Red for Women website; a community by women, for women.  It provides information on the latest research for the prevention and treatment of heart disease, healthy lifestyle tips for women and their families, and is a community where people can show their support and share their stories.
