In celebration of the 10th Annual National Wear Red Day on February 1, the American Heart Association is asking women across the country join together in making America Go Red to save women’s lives! Heart disease is the number one killer of women, and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.
But the strength of mothers, sisters, daughters and friends fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. For 10 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the Go Red For Women movement. They have proudly worn red, shared stories of survival and begun to understand the truth about women’s hearts and how heart disease can be prevented. More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over.
