Go Red For Women® celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women age 20 and over, killing approximately one woman every minute.
More women die of cardiovascular disease than the next four causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer.
While 1 in 30 deaths in American women are due to breast cancer, about 1 in 3 deaths are due to cardiovascular disease.
Only about 50% of women are aware of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.
80% of cardiac events in women may be prevented if women make the right choices for their hearts, involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. This means women just like you - mothers, sisters, friends - are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don't know what you know: heart disease kills.
Women have come together here in the fight against heart disease in women. Take your seat at the table with dedicated women and men just like you. Hear their survivor stories, learn how heart disease affects a family and how you can help stop heart disease in our lifetime. Share our mission to fight the No. 1 killer of women.
Make It Your Mission to fight heart disease in women. By sharing this commitment, together we can help save lives. Be a part of this extraordinary day.
Make It Your Mission.
