I HEART FEBRUARY!!!
I love February because, well, it’s the month of love. AND it’s my mommy’s birth month! (RIP) and every where you turn, there are countless opportunities for you to take heart!
This month, I am sharing an urgent message about heart health with all the women of inneractive FITCLUB and those who love them. Most women don’t know their biggest health threat. It’s not breast cancer. It’s not AIDS. It’s heart disease. Yet most women still think heart disease is a man’s disease. A new slogan says it well: “Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear—It’s the #1 Killer of Women.®“
Friday February 3, 2017 is National Wear Red Day—a day when Americans nationwide will take women’s health to heart by wearing red to show their support for women’s heart disease awareness.
inneractive FITCLUB has joined The Heart Truth®, a national awareness campaign for women about heart disease, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Help us spread The Heart Truth that heart disease is the #1 killer of women on National Wear Red Day®, on Friday, February 3, 2017. Most women don’t take their risk of heart disease seriously or personally. Help us to motivate women to find out their risks and take action to lower them.
So wear your red as a powerful visual reminder to take care of their hearts. Our mothers, daughters, nieces, and granddaughters need to learn the truth about heart disease:
- One of every four American women dies of heart disease.
- About 6 million American women have coronary heart disease.
- Two-thirds of American women who have had a heart attack don’t make a full recovery.
- Heart disease can permanently damage your heart and your life.
I hope you’ll consider being a part of our challenge this month as we take an active approach toward lovin’ the best of me and losin’ the rest of me.

The Heart Truth® is: Heart Disease Doesn’t Care What You Wear-It’s the #1 Killer of Women®. That’s why the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is sponsoring The Heart Truth, a national education program for women about heart disease.
The program warns women about heart disease and provides tools to help them take action against its risk factors. Its message is paired with an arresting visual-the Red Dress®-that serves as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.
