Please support 'Go Red'

To the editor:

For 10 years, women have fought heart disease as part of the Go Red For Women movement and saved the lives of more than 627,000 women. But the fight is not over. This No. 1 killer is still taking the lives of our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends. Women we love are dying, and many more are impacted every day.

As we look toward the 10th Annual National Wear Red this February, it’s more important than ever for women to stand side-by-side to end heart disease. It’s time to shout louder, stand stronger and demand change. It’s time to come together in a movement that is not just FOR women, but BY women. It’s time for women to Go Red.

On behalf of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Campaign, I’m asking our community to join me on Friday, Feb. 1, to wear red. Together, we can end heart disease.
