Don’t Forget Friday is National Wear Red Day
Friday is not only a reminder that 2019 is already going way to fast as it will be February 1st, but there is something much more important on Friday and that is National Wear Red Day. The focus of National Wear Red Day is to bring awareness to Women's Heart Health. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women, so wearing Red on Friday is to support women with heart disease.
The National day was started by the American Heart Association to serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally. It's alarming to know that 1 in 3 deaths among women each year are from Heart disease and stroke.
That's why this is so important just like the color pink has become familiar for breast cancer, lots of people are trying to push for red to become synonymous for heart disease. It's a small thing to pick out something red to wear on Friday but it will be in support of so many women. I know I am going to try and remember to wear red, and so should you.
