Many strides have been made in the fight against heart disease and stroke but more work still needs to be done! An estimated 44 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular disease and stroke, causing 1 in 3 women's deaths each year, or approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Ninety percent of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke. The American Heart Association’s mission is to save lives through education and medical research. This breakthrough could be just around the corner and will give more women hope, health and longer, brighter futures. Imagine for a moment what medical advancements have not yet been discovered!
The American Heart Association needs your help to fight the number one killer of women by funding cutting edge research and helping women turn simple choices into healthy actions. I invite you to Open Your Heart and make a gift to the Go Red For Women campaign. Information on how you can make a life-saving donation is on the back of this letter. Thank you for your gift!
Open Your Heart - A donation of $500 or more will be recognized with a customizable engraved crystal heart ornament. A gift of $150 or more will be recognized with a round ornament featuring the Go Red for Women logo. All ornaments will be displayed on our Tribute Tree at the 2017 Go Red For Women Luncheon. Keepsake ornaments will be mailed to you in March.
