For 11 years, the first Friday in February, the American Heart Association has been encouraging everyone to wear red and raise awareness of this silent killer.
Research has shown that Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, and has killed more woman then men. It is more deadly than all cancers combined.
Both of my grandparents, Papa Bear and Mimi, died of heart disease. Although they were both perfectly healthy through their late 60's. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be aware and be reminded to know the risks and take action to lead healthier lives!
Be a survivor so you can be there for your family!
