February is Heart Month!!!

As an ambassador for the American Heart Association, I wanted to let you know that . . . February is "Heart Month".

This is a better time than any to start living a heart healthy life! Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer in our country?? This disease does not discriminate... my husband who is a former athlete with good cholesterol and great blood pressure suffered a massive heart attack and almost did not survive. Thank goodness he did and now we spend our time educating and preventing heart disease.

Make February the time to start eating healthy, getting your check-up at the doctor and celebrating your favorite stroke and heart attack survivors!

February 6th is National Wear Red Day! Pass the word around to your family members and fellow employees to wear red on Friday, Feb. 6th to support the awareness of stroke and heart disease!
