The Power of the Heart

                             The Power of the Heart

    My published short story, Pump, is a true story, written as a testament to my fight against heart disease. I am an eight year heart disease survivor, dedicated to increasing awareness and advocacy. 
    Heart disease continues to take the lives of more women each year than all cancers combined. It is the number one killer of women, but we have the power to fight it. The work of the American Heart Association, specifically Go Red for Women, is dramatically helping women like you and me each day.
          This February 1st, Go Red for Women is challenging America to Go Red in support of heart disease awareness. 

I am asking for your support on this day by:
1.  Wearing red 
2. Having your workplace, home, and/or place of worship participate in a Go Red Campaign (see the link below for details or call/email me)
 3. support the American Heart Association at my personal fundraising page:
4. talking to your friends and family about heart-healthy decisions they can make in their lives. 
Please Go Red on February 1st for all the special women in your life! We have the power to stop this killer! – Karen
