For those of you that know me you know that my true passion in life has been to find a cure for Heart disease, the number one killer of women and men around the world. What I have learned over the years by being so involved with the American Heart Association is that unlike how I was raised to believe, it is not just a hereditary issue but can be prevented (80% preventable) with simple things like proper nutrition, exercise, regular preventative visits to a cardiologist for testing (got to know your numbers!) and some medications.
The facts are there, things are looking better…….Since the First National Wear Red Day in 2003, we’ve made tremendous strides in the fight against heart disease and stroke in women. Through research and education to healthy lifestyle changes, women are learning that they can make the right choices and see a difference in their health. Heart mortality rate has decreased nearly 30 percent over the past 10 years and it’s because of more than a few things that this Go Red For Women movement has brought to them.
Before tomorrow, we must acknowledge our continue support from our partners from the beginning , Macy’s Department Store, and the great work they have done to raise awareness of heart disease in women. “Macy’s helps fund life-saving research and education that no doubt impacts many lives.” says Macy’s spokesperson.
