Lots of ways to Go Red for heart health
My daughter and I were recently speakers at the annual Go Red for Women luncheon in Tampa, which raised close to $700,000 for the American Heart Association. The purpose is important because the AHA is the second largest funder of medical research in the U.S. after the federal government.
But the fashion was fun. Everyone wears red. I had no idea how many variations of a red dress there are these days.
I walked away so very proud of my 17-year-old daughter and reminded of how grateful I am she's made it through two serious heart procedures. (I've had some trouble with the old ticker myself but got it all fixed.) We wouldn't be here if not for amazing research and medical advancements.
I also was reminded that we need to listen to our bodies, get our numbers checked at least once a year, eat healthy and exercise. It's not just talk. Doing this can save your life.
Here's the link to the video on us... And enjoy the Go Red fashion spread.
