February is American Heart Month, and Feb. 7 was designated “National Wear Red Day” by the American Heart Association.
The American Heart Association has sponsored the “Go Red for Women” campaign for 10 years. The message: heart disease is the number one killer of women.
Did you know that more women die of heart disease than men? In fact, it is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. Over the years, the red dress has become the symbol of the fight against heart disease in women.
