Join the Go Red For Women® movement and help wipe out heart disease and stroke in our lifetime.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women and cardiovascular disease still kills more women than the next four causes of death combined. Yet women - our mothers, sisters and friends and maybe we - are not fully aware of the risk of heart disease and don't realize that although heart disease kills, by making the right choices and taking action we can fight it.
At the 2012 Go Red for Women Luncheon, women and men will come together in the fight against heart disease in women. Join us and meet dedicated women and men just like you. Hear their survivor stories, learn how heart disease affects them and their families and learn how they are spreading the word and fighting the No. 1 killer of women.
Join us in our mission to fight heart disease in women. By sharing in the commitment to Go Red for Women, together we can help save lives. Be a part of this extraordinary day.
Make Go Red for Women your Mission.
Nancy Lieberman, Esq.
Welcome to the Long Island Go Red Luncheon! We’re delighted you are here and appreciate your interest in learning how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s the No. 1 killer of women. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness of their risk and protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, join the American Heart Association in making it your mission to fight heart disease in women. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. Share what you learn today with your family and members of your community. Tell five women you want them to live and we can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation today will make a difference in the lives of women here and across the country. You can help fund local and national Go Red activities that support awareness, research, education and community programs that benefit women.
Thank you again for being here. My hope is that you won’t leave today without committing to making a difference by joining the Go Red For Women movement — women everywhere need your help. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. We believe reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake.
With your commitment, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
