Go Red for Women

Go Red For Women 

Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year.  This means that women we know – mother’s sisters, friends – are dying at the rate of one per minute. It simply does not have to be that way.  The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement is working to fund research and fight heart disease so that more women can live healthier and longer
