Illustration of the Red Dress logo, which serves as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness Although many people think of heart disease as a man's problem, women can and do get heart disease. In fact, heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. It is also a leading cause of disability among women.
Heart disease is the #1 killer of women! I support the American Heart Association for its efforts in educating women and men on proper cardiovascular care. I wear red to show my support for the family and friends who have been effected by heart disease.
