disease is the #1 killer of American women and 1 in 3 ladies die from this
deadly disease. The Go Red for Women Luncheon raises awareness and lifesaving
funds for our own community- Galveston Bay Area. We can make a difference for
our community and I ask you to join me in the fight against heart disease.
Please help us in reaching our goal by making an Open Your Heart donation. Through your donation, we are able to support educational programs to increase women's awareness and critical research to discover scientific advances of cardiovascular health in women.
Erika is Why
Several years ago, my daughter’s life changed drastically. While visiting for the holidays, Erika began to notice she was short of breath. Scared, we went to the hospital for further testing when we were told she was experiencing congestive heart failure. She was only 29 years old and had no risk factors. I couldn’t believe that my healthy, beautiful daughter had heart disease. This disease not only had the potential to take my daughter away from me, but take her away from her one-year-old son and husband.Without the tools and research American Heart Association provides to physicians, my daughter may not be with me today.

It is because of my personal connection to the mission of the American Heart Association that I am thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to give back to the organization that helped save my daughter’s life. I am serving as the Open Your Heart chair for the 2017 Bay Area Go Red for Women.
The Go Red for Women movement is a powerful campaign focused on women’s heart and brain health. 1 in 3 women in the United States die of some form of cardiovascular disease each year. Sadly, 90% of women don’t even know they have a risk factor. Your support could save someone’s life. I hope you will consider donating to our Open Your Heart campaign. Your generous contribution will allow a mom, sister, aunt, grandma or a friend to cherish time with loved ones. I thank you in advance for your generosity."
