After my grandmother passed away because of complications from a previous heart attack, I realized the need for a strong education and awareness campaign about the Number One killer of American Women – heart disease. Through my work as a Go Red for Women Ambassador, I have found my voice as a strong advocate for a heart-healthy lifestyle. My hope is to reach out to as many people as possible to prevent families from experiencing the pain of losing a loved one to heart disease.
I chose to plan a Go Red party to raise awareness of this serious disease. My granny & great grandmother suffered from heart disease and it is the #1 killer of women in America. I don’t think it gets enough recognition. Heart disease is preventable and it’s an important message to get out. Our healthy lifestyle CAN start now! We, teenagers need to know what we can do, and parents and grandparents need to educate their children & grandchildren on eating healthy.
As a woman, and an “Independent “ JAFRA Consultant, after I learned that heart disease takes a woman's life every minute, I had to do something. I said to myself, these women are mothers, sisters, wives, friends, aunts, neighbors, step-sisters, step-mothers, or co-workers, We all know someone who has been touched by heart disease. Go Red for Women is a cause we all need to help in any capacity because we all have a heart. JAFRA is a proud supporter of Go Red for Women. I’ve decided to advocate for women’s heart health by talking to women about their heart health at each of my presentation parties. I am committed and determined to helping my local American Heart Association in any way I can.
I'm an advocate for Go Red for Women because, with a few stunning exceptions (like my long suffering husband!), the vast majority of the most important people in my life are women -- my mother, sister, daughters and a great group of women friends. I don't want to lose a single one of them a moment sooner than absolutely necessary. Go Red focuses on educating women and the medical community on how women's heart health differs from men's (an issue about which there is a shocking level of ignorance) and on raising funds for more research dedicated to women's heart issues. By spreading the word and increasing scientific knowledge maybe we can move heart related deaths out of their number one spot. I'm hopeful.
