Friday, Feb. 4th: National Wear Red Day!

It's that time again--break out your finest reds, burgundies, and crimsons, everyone: shirts, skirts, slacks, dresses, ties, scarves, red dress pins, etc.

Friday, February 4th is National Wear Red Day, to raise awareness of women's heart disease.

Celebrate with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute's The Heart Truth:

Did you know: 250,000 women in the US die each year from heart attacks? Compare that with around 40,000 deaths from breast cancer.

Heart disease IS preventable--about 80 percent of cases, in fact. But the first step is making people aware that it's a problem.

So wear red on Friday: for you, for me, all the women in your life.
