In our 10th year it is still clear: Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women – killing more women than all forms of cancer combined. Most women don't notice the symptoms of heart disease until it's too late, which is why heart disease has been called the silent killer. But we won't be silent.
The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women is asking all women to Go Red by wearing red, living a healthy lifestyle and speaking red by spreading the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
For more than a decade, millions of women have united to raise their voices about this silent killer. While we've made remarkable progress, nearly 1,100 women are still dying each day. But, with your help, many more lives can be saved.
