Heart disease is no joke and it affects millions each year. It is the number one killer of women, so we cannot sit idly by without doing something about this serious epidemic. Do right by the cause and show your support by being fabulous in something red.
Friday, February 3rd is National Wear Red for Heart Disease, a day in which we all show our support for those dealing with heart disease. Since the inception of my blog, I have participated in National Wear Red Day and have urged my readers to do so. This year, I will not only be wearing red but attending the Bleeding Heart Project Launch Event in Chicago. The event is being hosted by BHP founder Raijean Stroud, who is a fashion blogger. She suffers from congestive heart failure and has had numerous surgeries and procedures since being diagnosed. Raijean wants to educate and empower others to take control of their health and encourages support and outreach through the Bleeding Heart Project.
The month of February has also been deemed Heart Awareness Month, and there will be plenty of events, programs, and digital attention on the importance of heart health and heart disease prevention.
My father also has congestive heart failure and suffers from heart disease. He has had 2 heart attacks and several stints put into his arteries to open them up. Heart disease runs in my family, so I also have to keep an eye on my heart health. It’s not something I take lightly.
Please make sure to wear red on Feb. 3rd and show your support. Also, I would love to feature you on my blog later this month in a post about supported of heart disease prevention. To be featured, take a photo of yourself wearing red and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s show the world how fab red is!
