Heart disease is no match for the power of women's voices
Heart disease is no match for the power of women’s voices. Most women don’t notice the symptoms of heart disease until it’s too late. That’s why heart disease has been called the silent killer. But we won’t be silent. Yet, many of these deaths can be prevented.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is the world’s largest network of women standing together to save women’s lives from heart disease. Millions of women have united to raise their voices about their No. 1 killer. With your help, many more lives can be saved.
Find out how you can raise your voice to end the no. 1 killer of women at this year’s Go Red For Women luncheon.
