Calling all women who are heart disease survivors!

In case you have never heard of the Go Red for Women campaign, it is a special project from the American Heart Association to bring about awareness for heart disease in women. On Saturday, February 6th, women who are heart disease survivors are encouraged to attend the Go Red Casting Call in many major cities through out the United States. This Casting Call consists of each woman telling her personal story about heart disease in front of local television crews. After reviewing all the candidates, women are chosen from each city to be considered as a national spokesperson for the American Heart Association.

It is empowering and therapeutic to share stories of survival so the Go Red for Women campaign also has a website for women who cannot attend the Casting Call but still want to take part in the process. The website for sharing your story is:


In case you are in the Atlanta area, the local Go Red Casting Call is scheduled to be at Macy’s at Perimeter Mall on February 6th. Check out your local American Heart Association chapter website for details in other cities.
