Today is National Wear Red Day. It’s a National day to show your support for heart disease in women. Both sides of my parents family have various heart issues. It seems to be more prevalent most likely due to the advances in modern technology making it easier to test and diagnose. Now more than ever it is important to get checked out and take care of our hearts.
The Heart Truth—is a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Designed to warn women of their #1 health threat, The Heart Truth created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wakeup call to American women.
So show your support and put on your red!!
