Fabulous after Fifty™ ~ Life Is Precious™ 
by Shirley W. Mitchell, The Golden Egg of Aging™

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women is asking all women to GO RED by wearing red February 5, spreading the fact that Cardiovascular diseases kills a woman every minute. Heart Disease is the #1 killer in women. The Go Red For Women movement is sponsored nationally by MACY’S!  It’s a reminder for women to take control of their cardiovascular health for a longer life.

For more than 12 years, women have been fighting heart disease individually and together as part of the GO RED FOR WOMEN MOVEMENT.  More than 650,000 women’s lives have been saved. One woman declared she would wear red and the red dress pin the entire month of February. She will be speaking red all month by wearing red, and living a healthy lifestyle!

The hospitals, towns, corporations, schools, legislators, members of the media, teachers and people from all parts of life will be wearing red in the United States of America, to focus on ways to eliminate heart attacks, strokes and other complications of heart disease.

February 7, 2014, American Heart Association’s GO RED FOR WOMEN MOVEMENT rang the NASDAQ STOCK MARKET OPENING BELL.

I certainly will be wearing Red. I've been living with a Pacemaker attached to my heart since 2008. If not for a wonderful cardiologist, medical expertise, plus the invention of the Pacemaker, my life, at age 70, would have ended 2008. Now 2015, with Third degree Heart Block, an Enlarged Left Ventricle and Enlarged Aortic Base, and an Aortic Valve leaking, I have just gone through a special laser procedure to unblock a Left Bundle Branch Blockage, so they could remove the pacemaker inside me. I now have a Defibrillator keeping me alive. I'm looking forward to seeing my Grand's and Greats grow up healthy and happy.

We must work individually and collectively to eradicate heart disease!
