Celebrate National Wear Red Day

How will you “Go Red” this Friday? Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s initiative to raise awareness of heart disease in women and educate them about how to prevent this #1 killer.

Did you know that:
*Cardiovascular disease kills approximately 450,000 women each year, about one every minute.
*While 1 in 30 American women die of breast cancer, about 1 in 3 die from cardiovascular disease.
*More women die of cardiovascular disease than the next five causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer.
*Ninety percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
*Only 1 in 5 women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat.
*Heart disease is largely preventable. In fact, 80 percent of cardiac events in women may be prevented if women make the right choices for their hearts, involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking.

To show your support, please remember to wear red on Friday, Feb. 5 and share this information with friends and family. For more information about Go Red and how you can make heart-healthy choices, please visit GoRedForWomen.org.
