Go Red For Women!

Posted: Updated:

Today isn't just any Friday; it's a Friday dedicated to raising awareness for heart disease by simply donning some red, as many of us did on Good Day LA today.  If you haven't heard, heart disease is the #1 killer of women. According to the American Heart Association, it causes 1 in 3 deaths (for women) each year. That's approximately one woman every minute! These horrifying statistics are another reason why we should lead a healthy lifestyle and always remember to listen to our body.  Identifying the symptoms of either a heart attack or stroke isn't easy, but it's important to educate yourself so I'm providing this link so you can read more about the symptoms: https://www.goredforwomen.org/home/about-heart-disease-in-women/symptoms-of-heart-disease/. 

Knowledge is power and, in this case, could save your life! So, throw on some red today and spread the health! I promise wearing red never felt so good... have a great weekend!
