It’s not just a man’s disease: more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Heart disease claims the lives of one in three women each year. This mean women we know – mother’s sisters, friends – are dying at the rate of one per minute. 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.
