Go RED

What's the #1 killer of women?

Heart Disease. About 8.6 million women world wide die each year due to heart disease. If that doesn't seem striking to you here's another statistic. 267,000 women die each year from heart attacks, just heart attacks, no other kind of heart disease, these 267,000 women are SIX times as many than those who die from Breast Cancer each year.

I meant to post this yesterday, to remind everyone.  Sorry…sometimes life gets in the way. 

Just wanted to thank of you who wore red today! We really appreciate it.  We hear so much about cancer and most often it is hard to mistake those bald heads.....but remember that Heart Defects are the number one killer of children...and heart disease is the number one killer of women. You cannot see their broken hearts underneath their clothing.

DISCLAIMMER: I try not to be all CHD (Congenial Heart Defect Awareness) All the time on here.  But, obviously its very near and dear to our hearts.  I plan to use this month to use this blog and spread some awareness about a very deadly, and very UNDERFUNDED Disease.
