February, which is American Heart Month, is just a few weeks away. Did you know more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined? Unfortunately, heart disease is often silent, hidden and misunderstood. That’s why the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is asking women to participate in the 9th Annual National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 3, 2012, to make ending heart disease a reality.
Red Hatters can wear red in support of the cause, learn more about their personal risk of heart disease, get involved with local events and register for a free red dress pin at GoRedForWomen.org or Facebook.com/GoRed.
