Fifty in Fifty
I have pressed the “pause button;” taking time to reflect on the many blessings that have come into my life. And as I kick off the 50th year of my adventure, I thought about what I wanted to do to celebrate it, and give thanks for it. The answer is simple. I am going to work to save lives.
One in every three women in this country will die from cardiovascular related disease. It is our number one killer. Yet, nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented.
Go Red for Women, is a comprehensive platform designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally. By working with the the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Movement to fund research, training and desperately needed programs, we can change theses statistics and save lives.
My goal is to raise $50,000 in the next 50 days. My request of you is a $50 donation, more if you can. Every donation in every denomination matters. And if you can’t donate, please support my efforts by simply sharing this post and helping to spread the word; we can all do that.
I am relentless in this mission because I know that with the right intervention, we can save our daughters, our mothers, our sisters and our friends. With your help, we can make 50 in 50 a reality that not only celebrates but saves the lives of women we love.
With deepest gratitude,
