Go Red for Women: 10 Years of Saving Lives

Every year, heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined, about 1 in every 3.  That’s because women display the symptoms differently, and often, in much more subtle ways.   Patty Clements from the American Heart Association explains how to lower your risk through heart disease through diet and exercise, the huge role that reading your food labels plays, and how Go Red for Women, celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year, is making a difference.  Lori Anne Parker-Danley shares her personal account of how she suffered 2 massive heart attacks at age 38, ignoring the first one altogether because the signs were so subtle, and how she’s learned to pay closer attention to her body.  More at Heart.org and LoriAnneParker.com.
