Your generosity enables the American Heart Association to fund groundbreaking research, develop guidelines to improve patient care and help people lower their risk factors for heart disease and stroke. As long as heart disease continues to be the nation’s No. 1 cause of death, the importance of our work will only grow. Please consider making a gift today.
Dear Family and Friends,
I am dedicated to a cause that has touched many of us…fighting Heart Diseases and Stroke. I Go Red for my mom.
My mom is a fearless fighter who is a survivor of heart disease and breast cancer. Heart disease kills more than all forms of cancers combined. She had been so reactive to cancer instead of proactive about heart disease, which is 80% preventable and could have mitigated her cancer. It took something tragic to happen for her to be proactive about heart disease.
Go Red For Women – and its symbolic Red Dress, is the American Heart Association’s movement to create awareness surrounding America’s #1 and #5 killers of women - heart disease and stroke.
Using my passion - to not only raise awareness but raise funds, I’ll be participating in the Capital Area Go Red For Women campaign in honor of all women affected by heart disease or stroke. My personal goal is to raise $5,000 from donors like you which will be used for critical cardiovascular disease research, advocacy efforts and education.
Past researchers funded by the AHA developed the stint, pacemaker, heart valves and so much more! Imagine what lifesaving technologies are around the corner because of donors like you!
Thank you for your support. Together we will make a difference!
