Friday February 5th is National Wear Red Day and is the big kick off to American Heart Month. I would like to invite you to join me in wearing red. By sporting your favorite red clothing on Friday you are showing that you are informed and advocating for your heart health. Heart disease will kill 1 in 3 women. Whenever I hear that statistic I think of this picture

I am not willing to let any of the women in this photo die from heart disease. Why am I wearing red on Friday?

  • Knowing the risk factors of heart disease is why
  • Ensuring my children grow up in a heart healthy home is why
  • Educating others about heart disease is why
  • Research to eradicate heart disease is why
  • Fundraising for research, education and advocacy is why
  • Survivors are why
  • The American Heart Association is why
  • Advocating for my heart health and yours is why
  • Family is why
  • Her Wedding is why
  • Life is why

Why will you wear red on Friday? Please share your why and include at least one of the following hashtags:

Courage, dear heart. ~C.S.Lewis
