Are You Decked Out in Red Today?

Posted February 3rd, 2012 by

We are!  Check out the PatientsLikeMe team members who donned red items (everything from ties to scarves to dresses) in support of National Wear Red Day.  Here’s to increasing awareness of heart disease – the number one killer of women – in 2012.

The PatientsLikeMe Team Showing Our Support for Women's Heart Health

Stay tuned for more about cardiovascular health throughout February, which is Heart Month.  That means it’s time to not just draw and cut out heart shapes for your Valentine – but to think about the organ that pumps our blood and keeps us alive.


Wear Red Tomorrow for Women’s Heart Health

Friday, February 3, 2012, Is National Wear Red Day

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.
