This morning, at the butt-crack of dawn, my mother called me.  She asked if I was wearing red today. 
“huh?”
“It’s heart day.”
“huh?”
“Everybody will be wearing red today.”
“uh…okay.”

I got to work today and googled.  It’s GoRedForWomen day. 


Even Bubba asked me last night to wash his red shirt so he could wear it today.  And Ty wore red socks. 

“Wear RED on Feb 6th to support the fight against heart disease in women.  Everyone can participate in National Wear Red Day. It’s a simple, powerful way to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke….”

 

So, today I urge you to:

Know the signs of a heart attack / stroke.

Assess your risks.

Read the latest news.

Get checked out by your doctor.

Start making changes.
