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.
I was unaware that heart disease was the #1 killer of women in the US, but am much more attuned to this ailment in men, owing to my family history. 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.
I was honored to be asked to fund raise for this important mission, especially owing to the many incredible women in my life. To all of the many family, friends and colleagues that are considering contributing to this year’s event - Thank you so very much.
