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 8th year on the LI Committee for
the Annual American Heart Association Go Red for Women luncheon, which is
taking place February 27, 2020 at the Crest Hollow Country Club on Long Island.
The luncheon hosts 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.
The first known experience of heart disease in our
family was in June 2008, when my grandmother passed away of congestive heart
failure, 2 months after heart surgery.
I joined the Go Red Committee 8 years ago in honor
of my grandma and to bring awareness of heart disease to women.
I continue to support this great cause and my
husband and my boys are my WHY.
Please join me in bringing awareness of this
disease – your support is greatly appreciated.
