National Red Day February 4 2011

Wear Red Day This National Wear Red Day, join the American Heart Association’s mission to ensure we never have to deny research that could save a woman’s life. Help raise the funds needed for lifesaving educational programs and the development of new treatments to fight heart disease. On Friday, February 4, Make It Your Mission To Save Lives.

Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. This means women you know — mothers, sisters, friends — are dying at the rate of one per minute. In fact, in the time it takes to read this, another woman will die from heart disease. It simply does not have to be that way. At the American Heart Association, we work every day to fund research and fight this killer so that more women can be saved. But we need your help.
