Dear Editor,
Research shows that 80 percent of cardiac events in women could be prevented if women make the right choices for their hearts, involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking. This February, during American Heart Month, Go Red For Women needs your help to raise awareness and motivate women to choose to beat heart disease!

Last February, Go Red For Women held a nationwide casting call to find women who are choosing to live better. From the hundreds of stories submitted in the call, nine women were selected to represent the cause as the 2009 Go Red Women.

Go Red For Women hopes that by meeting real women who have turned their personal choices into life-saving actions, women will encourage others to speak up about heart disease and empower themselves to make the choice to live.

Please help us inspire women everywhere to choose to live better. Please contact Carey Uxa at for more information and available resources.
