“As women, we often feel like there are too many things to get done and not enough time in the day to do them. Between all of our family, work and community responsibilities, we find that the last person’s needs we focus on are our very own. More often than not, the times that we finally realize that our body is trying to tell us something important, it is already too late in the day or we are too tired to really do anything about it. As a result, we end up pushing through symptoms of fatigue and pain, as opposed to taking the time to really figure out what is wrong. I have come to learn that taking the time to focus on my health is one of the most important things I can do, not only for myself, but for those around me I am responsible to provide for, because when I am feeling 100%, then I truly have 100% to give to others. When I came to learn that heart disease is the #1 killer of women today I was totally stunned! I had always assumed that it would be Breast Cancer because we hear so much in the media about that and we hear very little about heart disease and women. That is when I realized that we need to do something to make sure that every woman is aware and educated about heart disease. Women need to understand what symptoms they cannot take lightly or simply push past when they feel them. They need to know what indicators are telling them to get help now! That is why I am getting involved with Go Red for women. If women can hear the facts then they will pay attention and seek treatment more readily when needed. I believe Go Red is the best avenue for getting the facts out there to women. Please join me at the 2010 Go Red for Women Luncheon and be empowered to own your health!
"We need women like you. Strong. Dynamic. Passionate. Women who are willing to join with me as we strive to save our friends, our family, and our neighbors from the effects of heart disease. As the Circle
of Red Chair I am honored to be surrounded by so many women who are working with me to make a difference in our community. Each dollar raised will be used to fund women's heart disease research and will help us provide education and awarness activites right here in Utah."
Join Celeste Gleave in the fight against women and heart disease.
