    NO. 1 KILLER OF WOMEN

    Over 41 million American women are living with one or more types of cardiovascular disease, yet only one in five women view heart disease as their greatest health threat.

    Other alarming heart health statistics from the American Heart Association include:

    • One in three women have one or more types of cardiovascular disease.
    • More women die of cardiovascular disease than the next five causes of death combined, including cancer.

    CHOOSE TO SPEAK UP

    Heart disease is largely preventable, we simply have to choose to act. Regardless of gender, race or family history, every woman can speak up for her heart and choose to live.
