Ladies, do you know that Heart Disease is your #1 health threat? In our community alone, 27 women per day lose their lives to heart disease. That is 10,029 women in our state alone. Heart Disease is killing more women than the next four causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer. And, unfortunately, only 20% of the population of women are aware that Heart Disease is their #1 health threat.
Heart Disease takes the lives of 1 out of every 3 women. Heart Disease doesn’t affect all women the same. Plus, the symptoms and signs for Heart Disease are different in women than they are in men. 64% of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms. Women are 15% more likely than men to die of a heart attack, and they are twice as likely to have a second heart attack in the 6 years following the first.
And unfortunately, it is happening to younger and middle aged women, more than ever before.
Ladies, we need to be pro-active about our own heart health. One of the ways we can do that is by getting heart screenings. “Screen the Moms” was developed by “me”, along with the American Foundation For Cardiomyopathy, to help “you”, protect your heart.
“Screen the Moms” was developed to coincide along with the Youth Heart Screenings, because we know, Moms, that you are often the ones who are taking care of everyone and not always thinking about your own needs. We want to give you the opportunity to think about yourself, and your own heart health, while you are getting your kids and the ones you love, taken care of. Just as devastating as it is for a family to lose a child to a heart problem, it is just as devastating for a child to lose a mom to heart disease.
Even though this is called, “Screen the Moms”, this is a service that is available for all women! Whether you are a Mom, a Grandma (your risk increases 10 years after menopause and beyond), a teacher, a coach, a nanny, a sister, a cousin, never been a mom or grandma, you are all welcome to take part in these heart screenings.
