19 Kentucky women die every day from cardiovascular diseases. We are committed to changing that number in our State. By joining us on November 18th at the Lexington Center Bluegrass Ballroom you can help us continue the fight against heart disease in Kentucky through education, advocacy and research. Come see and hear the brave survivor models tell their stories of survival as they walk the runway in Macy’s latest fashions. Sit in on the breakout panels on “Reducing Financial Stress for women” and “Women’s Health Topics” plus enjoy some samples and heart healthy recipes from Kentucky Beef. There will be other fun surprises too. You will be inspired and you will be making a difference. Make It Your Mission to be there on November 18th.
Welcome to the Lexington Kentucky Go Red for Women Luncheon! We’re delighted you want to learn how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what Go Red For Women is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s women’s No. 1 killer. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this often-preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness, to protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and other loved ones. 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 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, speak up. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. You can make a difference. Choose to share what you learn today with your family and members of your community.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation will help fund local and national Go Red activities to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women.
Please don’t leave today without committing to make a difference. Join the Go Red For Women movement — women need your help. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. Reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you.
By working together, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
