Just ordered my Red Dress Pin for "National Wear Red Day®" on Friday, February 3, 2012. I will wear it, along with my red boots and red something or other, in order to promote national awareness of the #1 killer of women, heart disease. Because I am being treated for a heart condition that was found on a routine office visit, I feel I am one of the lucky ones. Lucky because I am aware of my condition and doing something about it. The smarter you are...the luckier you get.
BTW do you know the Heart Attack Warning Signs:
- Chest discomfort
- Discomfort in other areas of the upper body
- Shortness of breath
- Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness
For more information, contact your nearest American Heart Association office or call 1(800)242-8721 or online at ww.heart.org/HEARTORG/.
