Share From Heart

I met with a  representative from the American Heart Association  (May, 2010)  re: sharing my  story & volunteer opportunities with the organization. I completed the (volunteer) application and my journey began :helping patients cope with the recovery process.

Two years ago,(July 2015),  I traveled to Dallas, Texas to attend the two day training at the American Heart Association’s National Center for the newly established Heart Valve Ambassador Program. I  count it an honor to join a wonderful group of National Volunteer  Ambassadors, committed to making a difference in the community.

I ‘m grateful for the kind words and encouragement, I continue to receive from my family, friends,  American Heart Association management and staff : in Atlanta, Washington D.C.  and National Headquarters  located in Dallas, Texas: Heart Valve Ambassadors, and Edwards Lifesciences Foundation ,national sponsor of the American Heart Association’s Valvular Disease Education Center and Ambassador Program.

An estimated 44 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases.

  • 90% of women have one or more risk factors for heart disease or stroke.
  • Women have a higher lifetime risk of stroke than men.
  • 80% of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education
  • Fewer women than men survive their first heart attack.
  • The symptoms of heart attack can be different in women vs. men, and are often misunderstood – even by some physicians.
  • Women who are involved with the Go Red For Women movement live healthier lives.
  • When you get involved in supporting Go Red For Women by advocating, fundraising and sharing your story, more lives are saved.
