Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, causing 1 in 3 deaths every year. That means that women are dying at a rate of one per minute because of heart disease.
Tomorrow, February 3, 2012, is National Wear Red Day. Go Red for Women is an initiative created by the American Heart Association to raise awareness of heart disease. Wear red tomorrow to stand up and speak out against heart disease. In fact, wear red all month as February is American Heart Month.
In honor of this year’s American Heart Month, Emmy-nominated actress Elizabeth Banks directed a short film called “Just a Little Heart Attack,” which she says is, “A little film about a super mom who takes care of everyone except herself.”

More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. Make sure you wear red tomorrow to support the cause. Go red!
