You may not know this, but the number one killer of women is
heart disease. And every year more than 460,000 women die from
this largely preventable disease.
National Wear Red Day is a day to recognize the women who have
died from this disease, to build awareness of the statistics,
and to encourage all women to make a choice to beat heart
disease. This year National Wear Red Day is February 5. National
Wear Red Day is for women like Theresa. As a busy mom, Theresa
kept putting off a check-up, but called her doctor when she felt
tired, short of breath, and started having back and chest pains.
“I had a feeling that it was my heart, but all the tests were
saying it wasn’t, “ Theresa said. Two months later, Theresa had
a massive heart attack at a family birthday party. She was 38.
