It was a true honor to be asked to judge the Go Red for Women ambassador search. The American Heart Association is a close personal friend of the Mrs. Colorado organization especially since a former queen was an ambassador herself. Christina Sacha, Mrs. Colorado 2008, became an ambassador for the American Heart Association during her reign, after her husband suffered a heart attack.

I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to the courageous women who have been effected by Heart Disease and have a passion for sharing their stories and spreading awareness. Heart Disease is the number one killer of women and up until recently was perceived as an older male dominated disease.
The Go Red For Women movement works to make sure women know they are at risk so they can take action to protect their health. Please educate yourself on the warning signs, many women dismiss the symptoms as being tired, stressed, or malnourished. Visit: http://www.goredforwomen.org/index.aspx
