A Heart Disease Awareness Campaign: Helping women everywhere, become aware.
Did You Know That:
- HEART DISEASE —not breast cancer— is the leading cause of death among women in America?
- Approximately 500,000 WOMEN DIE from heart disease every year?
- Heart disease kills more than the next 7 highest causes of death combined?
- With numbers like this, it could happen to you or someone you love. Many deaths from heart disease can be prevented.
Do You Know How?
I am a survivor of sudden cardiac arrest, which is very different from a heart attack. A heart attack is when the heart convulses for lack of oxygen. Sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart abruptly stops—often with little to no warning signs.
It’s estimated that only 5% of witnessed victims survive and many of these with a seriously diminished quality of life. I am a miracle. And for what I experienced in the one minute or so that I was gone, I assure you we each have a spirit that will live once this body fails us.
I hope you’ll spend some time in this section of my web site, if for no other reason than to learn what you need to know to potentially save your own life, or that of someone you love.
Having written for Significant Living magazine, I submitted my story of surviving sudden cardiac arrest along with a secondary story with some heart-healthy recipes and photos. I was shocked to hear they wanted to make my story the cover story, even though Terry Bradshaw was the focus of one of the stories! I make this available as a complimentary feature in appreciation of Significant Living seeing the importance of highlighting heart-disease, which is the number 1 killer for women in North America. You can get a complimentary PDF complete with heart-healthy recipes by simply visiting our web store. Alternative you can read my story online.
