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.
NOT THE HEART SURVIVOR YOU EXPECT
Most people would not look at me and guess I have a heart condition. That at 39, I would need a pacemaker / defibrillator, and my heart function was 25%. It was then, I learned how different women are in relation to men heart health.
Did you know a woman is more likely to die then a man when having a heart attack? That our symptoms are different and that we are more frequently miss-diagnosed?
Only a few years before my condition, the American Heart Association started the Go Red for Women campaign. If it were not for this awareness I truly believe my condition would not have been caught and I would have possibly needed a heart transplant or would not be here at all.
Please join me in supporting this wonderful cause and let's raise awareness by having a conversation with all the women in our lives.
