Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death in women, claiming more lives than all cancers combined. Nearly 45% of women over age 20 are living with some form of CVD. Women experience unique life stages that increase their risk of developing CVD over their lifetime. Cardiovascular disease is also the leading cause of death for men and congenital heart defects are the most common birth defect in the U.S. But the good news is that most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented with awareness, education and positive lifestyle changes.

Every year, on the first Friday of February, the American Heart Association, which is celebrating its 100 th birthday this year, encourages the public to wear red to raise awareness and inspire them to live healthy and well to fight America’s leading killer.
