Go Red For Women is crucial in driving local support to fund life saving research and to educate women. Though we have made great strides in the advancement of women's cardiovascular health, we still have far to go. We need your help now so that our mothers, sisters and daughters have a chance to fight this silent killer. By sharing a commitment to speak up, spread the word and support the research, you can help save lives.
All women deserve
the opportunity to live a meaningful life, and that’s why I support the
American Heart Association’s mission of being a relentless force for a world of
longer, healthier lives. I have once again taken on a leadership role with the
American Heart Association (AHA) for New York City’s Go Red For Women movement.
Go Red For Women
helps women recognize heart disease as their #1 killer, educates them on how to
live healthy, reduce their risk and empowers them to advocate for their health.
In addition to arming women with the resources they need to reduce heart
disease and stroke, your support enables the AHA to fuel breakthroughs in
science, technology and support change in health systems and the community.
Every 80 seconds, a woman will die of heart disease or stroke, yet 80% of all
of these incidences are preventable – with proper healthy lifestyle choices and
I am excited to
announce that this year I have opened my heart even further than I ever have
before by collaborating with the AHA in a deeper, more meaningful way. I am so
passionate about educating women on ways to live in the moment, be mindful, and
manage their stress. Being present and practicing gratitude has been known to
have positive effects on physical, mental, and emotional health. I will be
working with the AHA to develop a podcast series, deliver traveling “Zen Dens”
to AHA supporting companies and showcase one at the Go Red For Women Luncheon,
and I’ll also be offering a 21-Days of Gratitude Challenge.
Everyone has a
reason for “Going Red” with the hope that they and their loved ones can improve
and maintain their well-being. I Go Red in honor of my mother who fortunately
was able to live a longer life than expected due to AHA research that led to
revolutionary medical advancements. My goal is to help other women across NYC,
like my mother, live longer, healthier lives.
I hope you will
stand alongside me and consider supporting this cause by making a donation to
help me reach my personal goal of $25,000. Your support will save lives! I
Thanking you from
the bottom of my heart.
