Hello.  As most of you know, I have suffered two heart attacks, have both a stent and a defibrillator, and my ejection fraction (the way my heart pumps blood to my body) remains at only 35% from the moderate scarring done to my heart from the first heart attack that didn’t heal, with doctors saying they don’t expect it to ever get any better.
Also, my maternal grandmother recently passed away from what was thought to be a stroke.

My ordeal and now what happened to my grandmother has led me to be passionate about raising awareness for the number one killer of women – heart disease and stroke.  Most women’s symptoms of a heart attack are much different than men, and most of the time they don’t know they are experiencing a heart attack until it is almost too late.  Heart disease can also lead to many other things including stroke.

I am a part of the Go Red for Women Passion Committee.  In case you didn’t know, February is Heart Month and February 3 is National Wear Red Day by the American Heart Association.  The Go Red for Women Passion Committee wants to “Paint the Town Red” to raise awareness for the #1 killer of women.  We are asking businesses to allow us to decorate your window with painted red dresses and hearts before February 3.  If you chose, we will paint your window for you on January 28 or you can paint it yourself.  The painting materials will be provided for you.  Female heart survivors will judge the window displays on Feb 3rd and you could win the best Go Red store window!
I strongly urge you to participate and let’s help spread awareness so that more people will know the warning signs.

Please let me know if you would like to participate.  I can be reached at 426-5008 or the City of Union at 429-1702 or by email at
