Go Red For Women presents - Untold Stories of the Heart Airs Saturday Sept. 20

Tune In and Raise Your Awareness on Heart Disease

What is the number-one killer of women? Breast Cancer? Ovarian Cancer? Car accidents? Diabetes?

If you said heart disease then you are correct. The problem is that very few women know this. Let alone are aware of the risk factors associated with the disease and most do not understand how they can prevent heart disease in the first place.

If you have 30 minutes tomorrow, tune in to Go Red For Women presents — Untold Stories of the Heart on NBC (check the schedule for local times). The show features Marie Osmond (her mother and grandmother died due to heart disease) and is hosted by Hoda Kotb, and aims to raise awareness through the personal stories of nine actual women living with heart disease. It may not change your life, but at the very least it will help make you aware of heart disease and the toll it can take if you don't do something to prevent it.

i love that it seems to be the time of year that foundations are out there on TV promoting their cause and trying to raise money. i think that we all forget that it's not hard to contribute and to donate time/money to causes and the fact that all the major networks are doing things like this - well that just shows that it's something that's important. people think that cancer is the most major way that people die or get sick but that's not always the case just as you've mentioned. heart disease is definitely one of the biggest and you don't always know how to look for signs or be proactive and protect yourself.
