Go Red For Women

14 May

Over a year ago I found out about a website called Go Red For Women.

They’re interested in improving women’s heart health and more. Take a look by following the link above or the one below. The “About” portion below came straight from the site.

Go Red For Women – About Heart Disease

About Heart Disease in Women

There’s a lot of talk about inequality between men and women, but one area in particular where women are leading in record numbers: heart disease. It’s the No. 1 killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. But there’s a leadership role just waiting for women like you to pounce on: Leading the charge to end this deadly foe once and for all.

In fact, women like Rachel D’Souza-Siebert have already decided they’re not going to take this lying down. “As women,” says Rachel, “we need to learn where to draw the line so we can take care of ourselves.” Rachel isn’t the only one. She’s one of thousands of women who’ve decided to Go Red, because enough is enough.

Cheryl Holmes thought pregnancy was the reason for her extreme sweating and difficulties breathing. Even Cheryl’s doctor was convinced pregnancy was the source of her symptoms. When they didn’t subside after the birth of her child, she discovered these symptoms were a sign of heart disease.

Unfortunately, Cheryl’s story isn’t uncommon. Many women are either unaware of the symptoms to pay attention to or may attribute their symptoms as due to other causes. For instance, that pain in your jaw, neck or back? Don’t assume it‘s just from the gym or a little extra stress. They could be symptoms of a heart attack .
