On the first Friday of each February, the American Heart Association saves lives and raises awareness for a very critical issue, heart disease. It’s a silent killer that has no noticeable symptoms, which research has revealed was by far the No. 1 killer of women in 2003. To show your support, the American Heart Association encourages everyone to wear red, raise their voices, know their cardiovascular risk, and take action to live longer, healthier lives. The red dress is the iconic symbol of the American Heart Association’s battle against heart disease in women and a bold choice because everyone remembers a lady in red — and now everyone will also know you care about the movement.
