Cardiovascular disease affects nearly one out of every two American women and is the No. 1 killer among females in the United States. Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke. Thanks to the millions of people across the country, the color red and the red dress now stand for the ability all women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives!
