MADISON (WKOW) -- Friday is national "Go Red" day and people throughout the area, including the Wake Up Wisconsin team, donned the color to support heart disease awareness.
The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women campaign is asking all women to Go Red by wearing red, living a healthy lifestyle and speaking red by spreading the message that heart disease is killing our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
Now in its tenth year, the effort has millions of women uniting to raise their voices about this silent killer, the number one killer of women. Heart disease causes 1 in 3 deaths each year, that's approximately one woman every minute.
The AHA says we've made remarkable progress, but nearly 1,100 women are still dying each day.
Doctors say the warning signs for women, aren't the same as they are for men, so women must be aware. Watch for shortness of breath, back pain, jaw pain and nausea. They say it's also important to trust your gut, if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Make an appointment with your doctor.
You can also Go Red by knowing your numbers; cholesterol, weight and blood pressure. A healthy diet and exercise plan will further reduce your risk.
