Today is Go Red for Women with Heart Disease. This event has never been so important to me. I have spent this past week and will spend most of the month of February speaking about WomenHeart and women with or at risk for heart disease.
It has been so interesting meeting women who have had their own cardiac events or they know they are at risk but are afraid to confront it, or are just interested in learning about it.
One in three women will die of heart disease. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in both women and men. More women will die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. More men have heart attacks but more women will die from them.
