Today is the day! It’s the 10th Annual National Wear Red Day. We hope you are all donning red today whether it is a dress, shirt, tie, scarf, shoes or an AHA Red Dress pin.
Today kicks off the first day of American Heart Month. For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, and 330 fewer women are dying per day. But the fight is far from over.
Heart disease is still our No. 1 killer – it affects more women than men and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. But the strength of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. I show my support in honor of the women I love, and I hope you’ll join me!
