Before February Comes To An End…

If you haven’t been sporting a lot of RED during the month of February, you should be! If not to celebrate the month with the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day, than for celebrating your HEART!

February holds the National Wear Red Day to show support against the fight against heart disease! In addition to that day, February is dedicated to a host of events that promote awareness against heart disease/stroke. You will find local campaigns and national campaigns all focused on promoting heart healthy lifestyles.
There are a few days left before month end! There is still time to show your support by wearing RED!
Take care of yourself….take care of your heart!
So, don’t delay….wear RED today!

National Wear Red Day – TODAY – Fri, Feb. 5th!

As you’re picking out what to wear this morning, only look at the items that are RED. Red! Red! Red! By wearing red today, you will support the American Heart Association with their Go Red For Women campaign.

I’m not going to get into all the specific statistics. It is as simple as this…heart disease is known as “the silent killer”. It is amazing how many women die of heart disease every day, every minute, and are totally unaware that they even have a problem. Most women think cancer is the leading killer in women….WRONG! It is heart disease!
So, this is the day, as well as everyday, to show your support! WEAR RED! Tell all the women in your life to support the cause and join the movement of GO RED FOR WOMEN! It could help save another woman’s life!
Will you be wearing red today? I will be….

I See Red….

I see RED…lots and lots of RED! It is amazing to see a group of women come together for a great cause! I was part of an amazing committee that hosted the Go Red For Women Executive Luncheon today, here, in Tulsa, OK.

The statistics I heard today were EYE OPENING! For example…this is a big one: Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women? Not just by a little bit either…it is 4 TIMES MORE the leading cause of death in women vs. cancer. Most of you thought cancer, didn’t you?

There are a lot of GREAT causes out there to volunteer for and support in this world. I’m particularly passionate about the Go Red For Women campaign, because of family history, as well as a I was with a dear friend of mine when she had a heart attack. That alone was an EYE OPENING experience for me and I didn’t need any statistics (from above) to convince me.

Here is my shameless plug: GET INVOLVED!! I can bet that everyone can name at least ONE person that has had a heart attack, stroke, or suffers from heart disease…man OR woman. Do you want to be a statistic? Or do you want one of your family members to be a statistic? We need to educate ourselves and others!
Besides, where else do you get to see a room filled with WOMEN looking fabulous in RED!
