For more than a decade, millions of women have united to raise their voices about heart disease as part of the Go Red For Women movement. These efforts have helped saved lives and improve the health of thousands of women across the country.
While we've made remarkable progress, heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women — killing more women than all forms of cancer combined.
National Wear Red Day — the first Friday each February — is a special day to bring attention to this silent killer of women.
On behalf of the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Campaign, please join me in celebrating National Wear Red Day on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 to help fight women’s No. 1 killer — heart disease.
