Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association's solution to save women's lives. Too many women die each year because they are unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer. One in three women suffers in silence - many not even realizing they are at risk, and almost one woman dies every minute of this largely preventable disease! Go Red For Women believes that bringing women together empowers them to bring a voice to this silent killer to help save lives.
Our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are at risk. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
For more than a decade Go Red For Women has fought for equal health opportunity for women. We proudly wear red, share our stories of survival and advocate for more research and swifter action for women's heart and brain health. Our future is focused on changing the culture to make it easier for women and their families to live healthier lives.
When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, it’s time to put our hearts into it.
I GO RED for Marie Morack. ~Jenifer Morack
