Go Red for Women

Dear Editor:

 This year is the 10th anniversary of the Go Red for Women movement, it’s more important than ever before for women to stand side-by-side to end heart disease. It’s time to shout louder, stand stronger and demand change. It’s time for even more women to Go Red!
 
More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved. But the fight is far from over.  Because this No. 1 killer is still taking the lives of our loved ones and because heart disease is taking a woman’s life every minute.  Heart disease strikes more women than men, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women versus men, and are often misunderstood.
 
Heart disease in women requires more attention, more research and swifter action. With the right information, education and care, heart disease can be treated, prevented and even ended.
 
Together, we can end heart disease. Join me, and millions of other women across the country by wearing a red, our public symbol of the fight, on National Wear Red Day – Friday, February 7th
 
We must not be silent.  Raise your voice!! 
 
LaTasha James, Go Red Ambassador
