The American Heart Association Wants Muskegon to Go Red For Women!

We started off the month with the gentle reminder that October is Breast Cancer Month.  Powerful story by a true champion on early detection and treatment!  So, as long as we have you thinking about women's health, let's talk about that thing inside you that makes you tick.  No, it's not your fashion sense or ability to save's your heart!  You know...that thing that you love with...hope with and dream with?  Your heart!  How else are we going to keep you around if you're not looking out for it?

The American Heart Association wants you to Go Red For Women.  Did you know that 1 in 3 women die every year from heart disease and stroke?  Think of the mom's...daughters...sisters....aunts and friends that are lost.  Did you know too, that 80% of heart related issues can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes?

All of that information, education and treatment...where does it come from?  Well, the American Heart Association was founded in 1924 to raise awareness about heart disease and strokes.  They have also set the standard for basic life support like CPR training and advanced cadio life support.  They help set the precedent for basic first aid and an ever increasing role in education and prevention of strokes.  Whew!  That's a lot of work!
