In Pennsylvania alone, nearly 26,000 women die each year from heart disease and stroke. These are women we know. They are our wives, sisters, mothers, daughters and friends. In fact, one of every three women will die from heart disease, yet less than 60 percent of women recognize heart disease as the No. 1 killer of women.
Through the Philadelphia Goes Red For Women® movement, the American Heart Association is working to decrease those numbers. We are working to empower women to Speak Up and take action to raise awareness and funds to help women everywhere GO RED.
