Tell 5. Save Lives.

February 4th is National Wear Red Day, a cause in promoting the fight against the #1 killer of women: Heart Disease. 1 out of every 3 women are diagnosed with heart disease, translating into a woman dies every minutes from this disease.

So this years campaign is "Tell 5, Save Lives." What 5 women will you tell about this disease? What do you need to know? KNOW YOUR RISK!

Risk Factors You Can Control or Treat

These risk factors can be controlled or treated with help from your healthcare professional. You can modify others by changing your lifestyle.

Risk Factors You Can't Control

Unfortunately, there are a number of factors such as age, family history and race, that you can't control. That's why it's so important to understand all of your risk factors, discuss them with your healthcare professional, and address the risk factors that you can control or treat.

Everyone knows 5 women that they love and cherish, why not love them just a little bit more, go red for women and tell 5 people you care about. It could save their lives and your life with them. I will be telling my dear friend Brenda (in the picture above).
