Most women don't notice the symptoms of heart disease until it's too late. That's why heart disease has been called the silent killer. But we won't be silent. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women - killing more than all forms of cancer combined.
The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign is the world's largest network standing together to end heart disease. For more than a decade, we've led the fight to protect women's hearts through research and education. Millions of women are uniting by wearing a red dress, our public symbol for the fight. The more women we mobilize to stop our No. 1 health threat, the more lives we can save.
More than 627,000 women have been saved from heart disease, and 330 fewer women are dying each day. Women's guidelines, created by the American Heart Association, have educated millions of healthcare providers to recognize and treat heart disease in women. Help us to continue the fight!
We must not be silent. Raise your voice and join the movement! Together, we can end heart disease.
