According to the American Heart Association, heart disease causes one in three deaths of women each year. It is more deadly than all forms of cancer, killing approximately one woman every minute. Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease, and the gap between men and women’s survival continues to widen. The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women vs. men, and are often misunderstood. While 1 in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of heart disease.
“We are proud to open our facility and host a Change of Heart day,” said Vong. “The event is a fun way for us to bring together our members and the community to educate women about heart disease, fitness, and health.”
Our goal is to raise $1,000. On behalf of Shirlee’s and our members, thank you for your support of this event to raise money for the American Heart Association.
