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.
As many of you may already know, a little more than fifteen years ago I lost my husband, Matt, to a heart attack. Recently, I was approached by a friend to get involved in the American Heart Association Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team. While thinking it over, I realized this would be a great way to honor his memory while also helping to prevent others from experiencing a similar tragic loss in their families. Like many of you, I was not aware that heart disease is the number one killer of women. So please join me in making a donation today to help the American Heart Association continue their funding for research and education to improve women's heart health.
