THE STORY:

Barbra Streisand wrote -

Here’s some important information you should know…

  • Heart disease is the number one killer of women today.
  • Five hundred thousand women in the United States die from heart disease each year--more than all cancers combined.
  • Today, more women are dying of heart disease than men.
  • Despite the fact that heart attacks present differently in men versus women, we still treat women based on research done on men.

This is not just a man’s disease anymore, this is now a woman’s health epidemic. For this reason, I created the Barbra Streisand Women’s Cardiovascular Research and Education Program at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

The symptoms of a heart attack are often different in women than in men. But for decades, women have been treated for cardiovascular disease based on medical research done on men.

Please help support this important program at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center this holiday season. 

Mozilla is offering $25,000 to the charity that raises the most money for their challenge and that donation would have an amazing impact on the Women’s Cardiovascular Research and Education Program.

The research at the Women's Heart Center is revolutionary. Few institutions in the country are so focused on how heart disease presents itself differently in women. The Center is changing how women are diagnosed, treated, and educated about heart disease. And their work is helping women everywhere.

But this is not just about women's health. The latest research at the Center on women's stem cells is showing that these cells may not only help a woman's heart, but a man's as well.

Please join me in supporting this life-giving program and help the Women's Heart Center at Cedars Sinai Medical Center receive the $25,000 donation from Mozilla.

Plus, if you give $31 or more right now, you’ll be entered to win a signed copy of my book: “My Passion For Design.” 

Thank you,

Barbra
