Celebrating Women's Heart Health With Wear Red Day!

  
  
  

Wear Red Day Profile PicToday is National Wear Red Day! The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women initiative is celebrating the 10th year of Wear Red Day with the hope that one day, we won't need it anymore.

Here at Lauren's Hope, we are proud to support Wear Red Day by wearing red, sharing the event via Facebook, Twitter, and our blog, and sharing Heart Health tips on our Heart Disease Awareness Pinterest board. PLUS today, we're having a red-themed giveaway. Enter to win a FREE, custom-engraved, waterproof ActiveWear Slim Silicone Medical ID Bracelet (in red, of course!) simply by leaving a comment below telling us what Wear Red Day means to you. 

How Can I Assess My Heart Disease Risk?

First, you can check out the American Heart Association's website for some really great assessment tools. They'll help you get an idea of how high or low your heart disease risk is, and then you can determine whether it's something you should consult your doctor about.

The AHA site also has information on how the following topics relate to heart health:

  • Exercise for kidsRed ActiveWear Slim Medical Alert Bracelet
  • Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Weight
  • Physical Activity

I think Wear Red is such an important day of the year. To me, it doesn't take much to show your support- and everyone can make a difference. :)

Heart disease...it runs through both sides of my family. I take it serious as has my Mom after her Mom experienced a second heart attack. It may be part of my heredity but, it isn't going to define me or my family's health. Every day is a chance to improve health. Every day we learn more ways to eat healthier and exercise more.

I am a nurse on a cardiac unit and I am also diabetic. I am doing everything I possibly can to lower my risk of heart disease. I spend everyday educating women (and men) about heart disease and to take their prescribed medicines and exercise and how to live healthier.

I love you items I am a survivor and I never mind wearing my medical bracelet or necklace and always get a lot of compliments on them.

"Go red" means more to me now than ever. I recently lost 100 pounds to regain my health to celebrate my 50th birthday - that was my gift to myself. The day after my birthday, on January 7th, I went into the hospital to have a pacemaker implanted. And on January 8th I ordered my Medical ID bracelet from Lauren's Hope! My friends are all wearing red today in my honor!

Wearing Red today means something to me because I have type 2 diabetes, I was previously overweight, my blood sugar was out of control, I had high cholesterol. I wasn't feeling good for a long time. Last year I made changes in my lifestyle started exercising everyday, changed my diet otherwise I may not be around for my children many of my relatives had died of heart disease or on dialysis.

My daughter is TID and I work in a Heart & Vascular Center and see first hand what heart disease is. Women are strong and nurturing by nature and often will put everyone else ahead of their own needs, thus ignoring critical heart signs.

Wear Red Day means remembering to keeping your heart healthy by eating a well balanced diet and exercise.

Wear red day is a way to raise awareness to everyone that heart disease is very serious and that we should all encourage everyone to take care of their heart...

Women are frequently under diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease. To me, wearing Red continues to educate and bring awareness to this issue.

Wearing RED means to me that I made a promise to my family to do all that I can to stay healthy and be around for a long long time. They wear RED to stand by me and let me know we are in this together THAT IS WHAT FAMILY DOES FOR EACH OTHER - WEAR RED ;-)

I have lost many people to heart disease. I was recently diagnosed as having coronary heart disease, I also have type 1 diabetes. I had a stent put in less than 2 weeks ago. I am learning so much about both. Wear Red means to me that my children might have more knowledge than I do and maybe they won't have the same struggles.
