You've heard Linda's story. Now take a moment to read the inspiring stories below. Real women with real stories are making it their mission to fight heart disease by speaking out. Their stories will inspire you to get informed with the facts and make a positive commitment to your heart health.
Lori Anne survived a rare heart condition that is usually only diagnosed post-mortem. She makes heart disease her mission for the betterment of women's lives. Katy suffered a massive heart attack at 28 and today wants women to know that heart disease doesn't have to equal death. She makes it her mission for women everywhere. After a frightening diagnosis from her son's doctor, Migdalia changed her family's eating and lifestyle habits to ensure they live a long, healthy life together. She makes it her mission for her boys and her mom.
Now that you have heard the Go Red for Women stories from these courageous women, Make It Your Mission to tell others about heart disease. Your donation will make a tremendous impact but your volunteer support will also make a difference. If you would like to hear more about Open Your Heart and volunteer opportunities, please contact your local Go Red For Women Director for additional information.
Every day stories like those of Linda, Katy and Migdalia are made possible by the research and education provided by the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and more women die of cardiovascular disease than the next five causes of death combined. But with your help, all this can be largely preventable.
Open your Heart is an opportunity in the Luncheon where you can Make It Your Mission to save lives and support Go Red For Women® by making a lifesaving donation. Chances are that you know a woman, man or child who has suffered from heart disease. This is one way that you can honor this survivor. Make a difference by giving a donation that will fund programs and research that will make living healthy a reality for women in your community and across the country.
