As a Cardiac Surgery ICU nurse, I know all too well the dangers women face with heart disease. They are more likely to be misdiagnosed, their symptoms aren’t “classic”, and therefore, women are more likely to die from a heart attack. Heart disease kills more woman than breast cancer! I would like to raise awareness on behalf of all the patients I have had the privilege to care for, and in honor of my family members who have been diagnosed with heart disease.
WEAR RED for awareness.
GIVE for the mothers, sisters, daughters and friends that you can’t bear to live without.
