American Heart month and National Wear Red Day are right around the corner. Be sure to show your support and speak up against heart disease by wearing red on Friday, February 5th. Together we can bring a voice to the number one killer of women and help save lives. By listening to our hearts, talking to doctors, and spreading the word to others, we can build awareness and drive action. This cause is very near and dear to my heart as I lost my mom to heart disease when she was 52. Please arm yourself with knowledge and help make others aware.
You can find more information on Go Red for Women, American Heart Month, and heart disease at the Wear Red for Women and American Heart Association websites.
You can get a free Wear Red for Women pin to wear on February 5th or every day HERE.
Learn the signs of heart attack and stroke HERE. Remember, women do not always experience "typical" heart attack symptoms and need to be more wary.
Take care of your heart!
