Go Red to raise awareness of heart disease

Rachel's story for Go Red for Women

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) One out of every three women die of heart disease and stroke, yet some people still believe it’s a man’s disease.

The American Heart Association dedicates every February to raising awareness with its Go Red for Women campaign. The goal is to bring awareness to women that heart disease is their number one killer.
