Wear Red Day

The goal of Wear Red Day is to increase awareness that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.  Each year, it kills more women than all cancers combined.  Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women.  But, it is estimated that 80% of cardiac events can be prevented through lifestyle changes and education.

Living with Cardiomyopathy and an implanted pacemaker, this day is particularly close to my heart. I encourage all women to love yourselves.  Listen to your body.  Take care of your heart.  And, wear RED!
