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.
This is my 7th year on the LI Committee for the Annual American Heart Association Go Red for Women luncheon, which is taking place February 27, 2019 at the Crest Hollow Country Club on Long Island. Each year the luncheon is attended by more than 1,000 people and focuses on the importance of women’s health with keynote speakers that have survived this disease.
Go Red For Women is a national organization promoted by the American Heart Association.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S., and Go Red is able to bring awareness of heart disease to millions of women every year.
In June 2008, my grandmother that I was very close with passed away of congestive heart failure about 2 months after heart surgery. This was the first known experience of heart disease in our family. I joined the Go Red Committee in honor of my grandma to bring awareness of heart disease to women.
Please join me in bringing awareness of this disease – your support is greatly appreciated.
