Did you know that heart disease kills more women than all cancers combined? And that it’s largely preventable?
Now you do – and there’s something you can do about it. Participate in National Wear Red Day® tomorrow, February 3, 2012. Better yet, get your friends and co-workers to dig into their closets as well. Together, you can make a vibrant, high-impact statement with your sea of red.
Another easy way to show your support is to “Like” the Go Red for Women page on Facebook. Everyone who becomes a fan will receive a free red dress pin to wear every year for this important event. Want to get inspired to do more? Watch comedic actress Elizabeth Banks in the short film “Just a Little Heart Attack” below.
Learn more about the risks of heart disease in women here. And if you’ve already been diagnosed with a cardiovascular condition – such as cardiomyopathy, coronary artery disease or valvular heart disease – don’t go it alone. Join PatientsLikeMe to share and learn with others like you.
