Wear Red for Women’s Heart Health This February #Giveaway

Taking Care of Your Family's Health and Well-being, Saints to Turn to, and the Catholic Faith

https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js
According to The American Heart Association,  more than one in three female adults has some form of cardiovascular disease. Since 1984, the number of CVD deaths for females has exceeded those for males. In 2008, CVD was the cause of death in 419,730 females. Females represent 51.7% of deaths from CVD. In the US in 2008, all CVDs combined claimed the lives of 419,730 females while all forms of cancer combined killed 270,210 females. Breast cancer claimed the lives of 40,589 females; lung cancer claimed 70,070. The 2008 death rate from CVD was 244.8. Death rates were 200.5 for white females and 277.4 for black females. In 2009, CVD was the first listed diagnosis of 2.9 million females discharged from short-stay hospitals. These statistics are shocking. Most women forget to talk to their doctor about heart disease.

Every February we are encouraged to wear red to spread awareness for women’s heart health.  This year, Healthgrades, Inc, a company dedicated to helping consumers make informed choices about America’s healthcare providers, has teamed up with the American Heart Association in February to help increase awareness about heart health and to encourage people to talk to their doctors about their heart.

Healthgrades, Inc has an application on their facebook page for you to pledge that you will talk to your doctor about cardiovascular disease this February.  For every pledge received, Healthgrades will donate $1 to the American Heart Association. And each person who takes our pledge will be entered to win one of a variety of heart healthy products recommended by the American Heart Association including a slow-cooker cookbook, a pedometer and a Go Red for Women water bottle. Visit the Healthgrades facebook page today and fill out their pledge.

Healthgrades is also giving away a special giveaway package to one Healthy Moms Magazine reader. This prize pack includes: a Slow-Cooker Cookbook, AHA Go Red for Women water bottle and an AHA-recommended pedometer.  All you need to do is take the Healthgrades pledge on their facebook page and leave us a comment to enter. This contest is open to US residents 18+ and ends on February 25, 2013.
