Go Red For Women is crucial in driving local support to fund life saving research and to educate women. Though we have made great strides in the advancement of women's cardiovascular health, we still have far to go. We need your help now so that our mothers, sisters and daughters have a chance to fight this silent killer. By sharing a commitment to speak up, spread the word and support the research, you can help save lives.
After participating in this event last year, I realize what a worthy cause this was and decided to continue my support for this years Go Red For Women Luncheon.
Knowing that heart disease was the #1 killer of women in the US, I also have family history on my paternal side. Both of my grandfathers died of heart disease and I am living with Atrial Fibrillation.
The Go Red Campaign is an invaluable tool for raising the awareness among women, and men alike. Learning to manage stress, making lifestyle changes and identifying congenital conditions are integral steps in combating this epidemic.
To all of the many family, friends and colleagues that are considering contributing to this year’s event - Thank you so very much.
