50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAYToday, February 2nd is National Wear Red Day. Here is the dilemma for a blogger, we can’t wear the outfit and post the outfit at the same time. Lol! I have actually run into people around town and they say, “that isn’t what you wore on the blog today.” So, here is a spoiler alert for you, I am NEVER wearing what is on the blog on that day! Lol!!! I figure most of you have already figured that one out. I do want to wear red today, you might see those pictures next week sometime, but I didn’t have any “new” pictures of me in red to talk about. Instead, I decided to look back through my archives and see what red outfits that I could come up with.50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAYNational Wear Red day is not about the outfit, it is about the cause. Here is what I found on the goredforwomen.org website.

Why Go Red? Cardiovascular disease in the U.S. kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health. That’s why this year we are asking that you wear red on National Wear Red Day® and Donate to Go Red For Woman. By doing so you help support educational programs to increase women’s awareness and critical research to discover scientific knowledge about cardiovascular health.50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAYGo Red For Women is a movement that starts with you. Lead by example and make the time to “Know Your Numbers.” It’s knowledge that could save your life.  Five numbers, that all women should know to take control of their heart health are: Total Cholesterol, HDL (good) Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and Body Mass Index (BMI). Knowing these numbers can help women and their healthcare provider determine their risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. It’s time for all women to learn the most critical numbers in their life — their hearts depend on it.50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAYI was shocked when I began to read the statics about women and heart disease. I had thought that Heart disease was a disease that affected mostly men. WRONG!!! Did you know that 1 in 3 women will die from heart disease and stroke! That is 1 in 3! I looked around today at work at the 4 of us ladies working there. One of us has already had open heart surgery. 😳50 IS NOT OLD | NATIONAL WEAR RED DAYI know this is not my normal type post but I thought it was something worth highlighting. If you are interested in any of the outfits above I am going to link to that post so that you can go back and see where the clothing was purchased.

    I love all these outfits!! Very stylish! I was surprised how much I liked Candy & Cupid!! It isn’t really my style to wear a short jacket but it is so cute and flattering I may have to rethink that!

  2. Lady In Red!!!! Beautiful ❤️ My favorite is #5. I like everything about that look. I really like #4 too. My husband has a really good friend who had a heart attack last year. He did have surgery and doing good now. He has always been in excellent shape due to cycling miles at a time as well as eating healthy. So just because you can be in excellent shape doesn’t prevent you from having a heart attack. I agree with you to always keep those 5 numbers in check. Enjoy your weekend. ~Lisa~

  3. Do you have a link to the actual #4? The red dress with the black blazer.

  4. My short story is about me. As of yet, I do not have heart disease; however, my doctor is very concerned. I have no risk factors, other than genetics. I am a non-smoking, non-drinking, 125lb. Caucasian Female. My blood pressure is great. My sugar is great. My diet is great. My fitness is on target. Yet, my numbers keep climbing. From December 2016 to January 2018, my total cholesterol went up from 237 to 334. My LDL increased from 163 to 236. This number should be under 99. Nonetheless, he gave me 6 months to “ fix” it or will be forcing drugs, and says he can guarantee a heart attack and/or stroke. Did I mention that I have an 8 year old daughter? My point in this long story…..get tested every year. Sometimes, the risk is silent.❤️

    My FIL has had 2 heart attacks…the first one was 32 yrs ago, when we were on a shopping trip to buy cribs for our expected twins. Approximately 15 years later he had another one and this time he had bypass surgery. A few years ago he had a pacemaker put in. Today is his 84th birthday and he is doing extremely well!! Thank God for really good doctors!!

  6. All the outfits are great, but #5 is my favorite too. All of my numbers are spot on and always have been. Yet, at age 60 I had a small heart attack, having a stent inserted. I come from a family with six gurls. Four of us six have had a heart attack, also both of my parents. Genetics play a huge part in our story. Watch the numbers and urge your family members to also.

  7. Daddy and all of his siblings died of heart disease. Daddy had open heart surgery at age 62 for a valve replacement and again for aortic aneurysm at sge 69. He had a stroke after surgery and died 2 months later. We are all very concerned about our genetic predisposition to heart disease. Two of my siblings are having issues at this point in their lives (50’s and 60’s). This is a very real issue that making some modifications in your lifestyle and early detection can make a difference. I urge every woman out there to take this seriously. God bless! Best…kathy

  8. 3 years ago my Dad was complaining about heartburn, (which he had never had before) his Dr. “at the time” just told him to take Nexium, 2 days later my Dad was having triple bypass surgery. He is 82 now and doing fairly well..

    Love you in all these red outfits!!! One of my favorite colors. The info was really sobering though. I did not know 1 in 3.

    My mother had a heart attack several years ago. Her only symptoms were those of an upper respritory episode. I have never been so surprised as when the dr. Told us she had had a heart attack. Listen to your body. No one knows better than you when something is “wrong”.

  11. I have a friend and her husband that are the same age as my husband and me (61) They have both had open heart surgery while my husband and I work out almost everyday and have recently shed our extra pounds. I know some of this is genetic but a lot is tied to life style also. It makes my so sad when people don’t take care of themselves.

  12. Thanks for sharing. The only numbers I know are my age and my weight…and I try to disregard both of those numbers! Your article is a wake up call to me saying that I need to get to a doctor and get those tests run……eventually….. I am some one who very very rarely sees a doctor and I have an enormous needle phobia. I really need to remove the word “eventually” and just get this done!!!!!! My girlfriends and family members have had many other serious medical issues but no one has had any heart disease or heart problems. Maybe I am that ONE in three. Yikes!!!!

  13. Thanks for sharing the information, which is so very important (my own Grandfather died before my eyes when I was a child from heart attack) part of the reason I chose to change my lifestyle drastically in April 2017. I waited for so many years for the “magic wand” of health, but it turns out it is still diet and exercise that makes the difference. I have to repeat every day that it I CHOOSE what I put in my mouth and I am CHOOSING to stay healthy for my children and just to live a more fulfilling life. Love the outfits, you have made my journey easier for sure, making me realize it is ok to take the time and energy for myself and it has actually made it so much easier and fun, in turn, to give to others! Thank You.

  14. I love all the red today! ❤️ My mother, who was about as healthy an eater as I’ve ever seen, had heart trouble and had to have a balloon angioplasty in the hospital. When it was over and she was resting before she could go home, she was hungry and asked for something to eat. They brought her a grilled cheese sandwich. She ate the whole thing and practically licked her fingers and the plate, and when there was nothing left she looked over at me and said “I don’t think that was fake cheese.“ I laugh and laugh every time I think about that story!

    I had an episode of arrhythmia which caused me to pass out. The next day at work (at a hospital thank God) I started feeling odd and had one of my fellow nurses check my blood pressure, which she reported as fine, but your pulse rate is 140! They escorted me to ED where I stay having cardiac diagnostic tests. I ended up having an ablation where the cardiologist used radio frequency to burn the area of my heart where the abnormal rhythm originated. It was quite an experience!!
    We think this was caused by an arthritis medicine I had taken, which was removed from market due to causing cardiac problems 😳

  16. You look great in red! I especially love the dresses and the last jacket with boots and jeans! Your blog is fantastic!

  17. I love red and you look great in red. When I was working, we would have a “wear red day” for women’s heart health and many of the men would participate too. Have a great weekend.

  18. Heart disease runs in my family! Several years ago I had to have a heart ablation. It was scary. I have Super Ventricular Tachycardia- the procedure they performed corrected it for the most part- I still take medication to help control my heart rate. My heart rate was over 200 when I went into the hospital. Thankful to God and to the doctor who performed the procedure!

  19. Do not take uncoated aspirin. My mother had heart disease in her blood vessels and passed unexpectedly 2 years ago of a stroke with complications. As an older woman, she had heard that she should take aspirin as a blood thinner, but she never liked going to the doctor, so she didn’t consult with a doctor on that. On her own, she did start taking aspirin, but the aspirin was uncoated. Nobody knew about the uncoated aspirin until 2 years ago when she had a mild stroke. She recovered from the stroke, and the doctor said she was strong and gave her some meds to take home. The meds made my mother nauseated, so she wasn’t eating. Because she wasn’t eating, the damage to her stomach caused by the uncoated aspirin caused problems for her stomach. Needless to say, she wound up back in the hospital with another stroke, but because of the additional bleeding in her stomach this time, she was not able to recover.

    Candy & Cupid is my favorite!
    My mother died of a heart attack at the age I am now. I was 13 at the time. I watch what I eat, exercise and always go for my check ups. I pray it’s enough because I’m certainly not ready to leave this life.

    Hi Tania! Love outfit #1! I will be having open heart surgery on Tuesday February 6th to replace my bicuspid aortic valve. I will definitely be wearing red today. Please hold me up in prayer. I believe that we have a good good Father and He loves us! Love your blog and everything you wear but especially love that you are a woman of faith and are not afraid to share It! May He continue to bless you and use you through your blog!

  22. My father is /was larger than life…He also smoked 4 packs of cigarettes per day. Growing up in Danville, VA, he worked the tobacco farms as a kid. My dad passed suddenly at the age of 70 after taking care of his parents in their last years. So much for his “enjoying retirement”.. It helped me get those magical tests even though I do not smoke. And for my corps, I always have National Wear Red Day. I have witnessed so many “cardiac events” while we stress others. Thank you Tania for reminding us about the silent signals as women we have! I have a friend who had a heart attack at 32. So thank you for reminding us we are worth taking care of ourselves! Laura

  23. Cristina Downey Reply

    Red is great on you! Truer words indeed! women manifest heart disease much differently than men – sustained jaw and neck pain, indigestion, back pain, do not ignore these and women do because we are used to plow thru discomforts and keep on going. Talk to your doctors about having a calcium score scan. It takes 5 minutes and many insurance companies don’t cover it but is the best $200.00 you will ever spend. This measures calcification plaques in your arteries and is totally non-invasive so no fears! It can be a great heads up since plaques that dislodge can move up and block arteries. Thanks Tania for the awareness, and just like with men being skinny or a vegan does not necessarily save you. Know your family history, genetics count!❤️❤️❤️

  24. A good reminder on the importance of heart health!

    You rock red! I love the bold colour of number 1 but I want the outfit in number 5. This is a smashing classic I would never tire of.

  25. My mother died of a heart attack at 76. The night before she died she complained of nausea and exhaustion, not typically what you think of with heart problems. Not one to complain, she made some soup and went to bed. Unfortunately she died before she could seek medical attention.

  26. Thank you, love the red outfits! We need to take care of ourselves and encourage other women we love to do the same.

  27. I love all the outfits you put together for red! Outfit 2 would be my choice but it was difficult to choose. Heart disease runs in my family. I recently lost my father to congestive heart failure. Both my grandmothers died from strokes. Women need to be watchful as many people don’t think of heart disease or heart attacks with women, only men, so many women ignore the symptoms. Thank you for posting the information.

  28. Teresa Spivey Reply

    Red is one of my favorite colors. Looks fantastic on you! My nephew had a massive heart attack at 34. He said he just felt weird and thought he needed to go to the emergency room. He really wasn’t feeling much pain, he just knew something wasn’t right. Thank God he did! I have a friend who called the ambulance because she thought she was having heart attack, they came, said they didn’t think she was and left. 15 minutes later a neighbor who was a nurse came by and said yes, you are having a heart attack! Called the ambulance back and she had triple by pass on Monday. Doing great now. Women and men can have different symptoms. Get your numbers checked!

    In 2004 I had to have open heart surgery due to a leaky valve and an aneurysm. It was a frightening experience and I’m thankful for my doctors! I am a huge supporter of women’s heart health! As a matter of fact, I am wearing my red dress pin today.

  30. Charlcy Green Reply

    Those outfits are all stunning, Tania! You are just so beautiful and SO good at putting everything together! I hardly ever wear red but you inspire me! I especially love Candy and Cupid, and Happy Valentines Day! It seems everyone of your readers has been affected by heart issues, including me. Last year I was unable to sleep for about 2 months. Everytime I laid down I could not breathe and thought I was having asthma attacks so I’d get up and use my inhaler which didn’t help. I finally went to the Dr. and found out I had arrythmia. I’ve been on heart medication since, as well as taking a baby aspirin and fish oil everyday! I walk my dogs everyday and try to eat alot of green veggies. But there is more I could do to lose weight and eat less carbs and Mexican food which is a real struggle for me!

  31. Red Dress Pin became my favorite when I learned more later in life what heart disease can lead to. First my Aunt had one of the first ever open heart surgery to fix a valve. Has lived a wonderful life since it, but years later found out from blood donors she has Hep C. My mom found out when I she was 52 (my age) that she had Angina and high cholesterol. My children’s fathers family had a lot of cholesterol and heart disease. I went from eating beef because we no longer had our own cows. Stop eating bacon, fatty pork. My daughters were raised on white me and being Norwegian lots of fish.

    33yrs after my mom’s diagnosis for heart disease we get told she has Early on set Alzheimer. I began a lot of research, talking to a lot of doctors. Found that yes we all have a chance at a form of dementia depending on life styles. My mom’s heart disease became her brains down fall. He diet was to strict removed a lot of needed proteins the brain and body need. Statin drugs can hurt some as well. She was also not a daily exercise person out side of taking care of a 4000sq ft. home and my dad.

    Last year lost a good friend who was 36 to congestive heart failure. Us women need to take care of our Precious Hearts.

    God Bless to all who may read this comment. I hope you all have a wonderful day

  32. OMG Tania I had no idea 1 in 3, that is just shocking isn’t it? Thank you for that jolt of reality. I work in a building where all of the staff and tenants, are women. Brings this factor into focus. Thanks again, for the record the red dress is one of my favourites on you, but the red boots in Candy and Cupid are to die for!!

  33. I love your outfits, Tania. Candy Cupid i#5 is my fave outfit. My heart warning story is about my reaction to Synthroid I was taking for my thyroid. My blood pressure escalated over time to dangerously high levels and I ended up in the emergency room. Thank goodness I didn’t have a heart attack. Although the docs denied my sky high pressure & palipitations were due to Synthroid, I stopped taking it. And, finally after about 6 weeks off of it, my blood pressure was in a constant, even state once again. Mind you, I take Ziac blood pressure pills, yet it was if I wasn’t on any pills whatsoever! They even switched me out to different brands of b.p. meds and none barely worked…until I was off Synthroid. Spending months checking my blood pressure with my cuff every few hours, and leaving my door unlocked at time – in case I had to call an ambulance – sure was scary stuff.

  34. Great information to remind us about women and heart health. Both of my grandmothers had heart disease. One of my sons is an Invasive Cardio Cath Tech. He helps perform caths on patients everyday. He has patients of all ages. He tells me it’s important for women to know how different the symptoms of heart attack can be for us. Most information for years focused on symptoms that men have during a heart attack. We girls need to research and learn the symptoms that present in us. So please google “women’s heart attack warning signs” and be informed. It might save your life or someone you love.

  35. Very early one morning my husband woke me to tell me he was having trouble breathing, this had been going on most of the night. I took him to the emergency room where they hooked him up to various machines to discover he had a heart attack. They checked him for blockage. He ended up having a procedure (ablation) where they stop the heart then restart it so it will beat in proper rhythm.
    My mother had mini strokes. These showed up as confusion. She already had dementia but the confusion was more pronounced than just the forgetfulness of dementia.
    Thank you for bringing this up. Women need to be reminded to take care of themselves. We are so busy taking care of others we forget that if we don’t take care of ourselves we won’t be able to care for family and friends.

    I have to find some red boots……….❤️
    Heart disease has touched us here at home. Four years ago my brother had a heart and liver transplant. There are 5 siblings in my family and as happens in many families we were all busy and didn’t see each other often. Time and distance had separated us but illness brought us back together. My brother was going to need lots of help during his recovery and we all came together to help him. We found each other again in the process. We laughed and cried, we were scared but we were together. We are all still keeping in touch and met in Houston for our nieces wedding in September. God had a plan and I am thankful!

  37. This topic is very near and dear to my heart. Heart disease has touched my life greatly. My sister died because of it. She was 35 years old; she left her husband and 6 children behind. Her children ranged from 6 months-9 years. She was healthy all her life. She ate well, and exercised regularly. I talked to her the day she died, and she complained of pain in her left shoulder and down her left arm. She said that she had had some sort of adjustment done at the chiropractor’s office that morning and said she had contacted them about this pain. They told her that it was probably due to the adjustment she had done. The pain continued throughout the day. By the end of the day she decided that she better go in and have things checked out. She had contacted someone to come over and sit with the kids, and her husband was on his way home. The phone rang, and my sister went to answer it, and that is when she collapsed. By the time the babysitters got to her, she was already blue. They called 911 and got her to the hospital but it was too late. It has been 14 years since she passed away, but not a day goes by that I don’t think about her.
    Thank you for wearing Red today, and allowing us to share our stories

  38. I love the outfits. You are always so stylish. I have a question about the beautiful last tango jacket. Would you wear it indoors as part of your outfit?

    I am very fortunate to not have been touched by heart disease. My husband takes blood pressure and cholesterol meds and they seem to help. We both need to lose weight – I’m sure that would help.

  39. Don’t smoke. If you do, quit. It could save your life. My MIL died in her sleep at the young age of 59 from a heart attack and it was attributed to years of smoking and the damage it had done to her heart. She was otherwise in good health. Such a loss of someone so young. I’m only a couple of years younger than she was when she died now…

    I have a very close friend that is and has been battling serious heart issues for the past 4 years. She is one of the most positive and strongest people I know. Through it all, she is selfless and concerned for others. I would love to be able to gift her with this bracelet. She is an inspiration to me and many who know her. Her eyes are always on God.
    Here are just a few of many of her FB posts:
    “Seems most days something about my #heartjourney pops up. Ironically I had a cardiologist appointment this morning. Overall checkup post latest hospital stint was okay. Love my doctors. They just tell me the real deal. “Girl, you’ve got a seriously aggressive coronary artery disease.” I cried as usual. Doc hugs me as usual. Even if your docs aren’t supposed to, I think we have a personal bond. I think he (actually “he” is “they”, there are 2 and they are the bomb.com) knows I really love him and I think he really loves me. He wants me to be well and does his best. It’s hard hearing the word “disease.” I know many of you can personally relate. I got some new and old meds added to my repertoire. Starting an injectable medication that we hope will bring positive results. As I posted four years ago, I am overwhelmed every day by the love and support I receive. I’ve always thought of myself as a giver. It came easy to me. However, I never knew receiving would be so difficult. I’ve been told to just simply say thank you. Thank you dear ones. Much love, light, prayers and peace to all.”

    “As usual I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, well wishes, prayers, offers of help, food for thought and the many kind & encouraging words I have received. I’m at a bit of a loss for words. A simple thank you seems inadequate. Still I want to say thank you, a very heartfelt one to all of you! Tomorrow morning I will undergo another heart cath to insert new stents. Another open heart surgery is too difficult at this time. We have consulted with numerous doctors and are confident with their decision. God is great! I remain stedfast and calm. I have turned it over to Him! Again, thank you. Goodnight my friends. Love to all. xo”

    “Last night I went to bed with a happy heart. This morning I woke up with a hurting heart, literally a hurting heart. My intention was to go to church, but realized I needed to stay in and take it easy. I have lived with heart issues for the last four years. I’ve survived that which often times I thought I would not. This morning I simply fell to pieces, emotionally, mentally and physically. I texted my sister, and as usual, she immediately called me. She helped talk me off “the ledge” so to speak. I then tuned into Cokesbury’s live stream service. I was instantly overwhelmed with God’s presence. I relaxed and the pressure in my chest eased. I knew He was holding my hand as I stepped down from the ledge I was on. He was with me. He is with us all. He is everywhere. Always. He is always holding our hand. He is the calm, the peace we all need. Everyone I know is hurting in some way. Before you lay your head down tonight, I ask that you say a prayer for someone, anyone who is hurting. You don’t have know them, just say a prayer for someone. God is listening. Prayers matter. Peace, love, light and prayers. Love to all. Goodnight. xo #prayersmatter #andthebeatgoeson #heartjourney ❤️”

    Thank you Tania

  41. You always look great but #5 is my pic…this week I went and had my nuclear stress test done which I have been having done every 2 years….so far everything has been normal (thank you God) reason I have it done so often is I was adopted and don’t really know much of family history except my biological mother died at 43 and most women on her side never made it passed 65! Weee I will be 66 in April and have ATLEAST another 30 to go!! Lol

    Tania, I wish you were my fashion stylist. I generally love your selection for the day and would love a peek into your closet! Do you actually shop shop shop constantly? Love the variety. If you ever are having a closet clearance sale let me know. I’ll send my sister over to shop for me. She lives near Roanoke.

  44. Here’s my story. I have hormone issues, including palpitations and SVT. I’m on meds, including one that will lower my BP and keep my anxiety at bay. I feel GREAT! I see my doctor every 6 months and have a physical every year with blood work. I’m all about prevention! The key for me is to leave my health in God’s hands so that I won’t become anxious. Leading a peaceful life is most important. Tania, you look great in red! I especially love the dress.

    My dad was 39 when he had his first heart attack and my brother was 56 when he had his first of seven heart attacks. Yes, seven! Obviously the Lord is not finished with him yet. Anyway, my dad and brother both had the “normal” symptoms of a heart attack. However, my mother was 82 and felt very nauseous and had a terrible pain in her back. She suddenly started throwing up and couldn’t stop so my sister took her to the emergency room. She was having a heart attack and coded right there in the ER. They revived her and flew her via Lifestar helicopter to a larger hospital and she once again coded in the helicopter. Thankfully she stabilized and after a pacemaker was put in she is doing fine. However, the one thing all three of my family members had in common was Diabetes. Yes, that was a contributing factor. I never knew that diabetes was so serious and can affect every single organ in your body. Pretty scary.
    Thanks for bringing attention to this issue. Heart disease is so rampant and the symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. I guess we just need to be aware of what our bodies are telling us and seek treatment if you don’t feel right.

    Wow & Thank You. I am a new subscriber at age 53 . Long story short version… I am just now becoming the Woman I want my Daughters to be! Sadly I had “let myself go” in all regards – dignity, fashion and health during an emotionally toxic relationship of twenty years. You have inspired me in more ways than you’ll ever know ! Todays “Wear Red for Women” comment section , may literally save my life thanks to “Susan”. I never knew that having a pre-existing heart murmur could pose a life threatening condition . I am finding so much strength and guidance here . Words can not express the depth of my appreciation . Sincere Thanks for all you do,

  47. Thanks for sharing this. I would never have thought of having issues considering your profile. We must be vigilant.

  48. Tania you look wonderful in all those styles and my favorite is Candy & Cupid!
    All you ladies, thank you for sharing your experiences and may God bless each of you. You definitely got my attention with all you have endured and I must get serious with my health. I have not taken my cholesterol and other issues serious and you have opened my eyes today! Tania, thank you for making this your blog today! I was definitely shocked in the statistics of 1 in 3…. that’s frightening.. but thank goodness we can make lifestyle changes to “be our best”.
    Thanks Carla

    My younger sister suffered a near heart attack 10 years ago, at age 41. She had been having some pains, but just ignored it, until she no longer could. She had a 90% blockage, and had a stent placed. She’s doing fine now, but we were all just shocked because she is in good health. It’s a good warning to not ignore pain and think it will just go away. And, we have all made some lifestyle changes like getting daily exercise and eating healthier.

  51. My mom was one of eight girls. There is a history of heart and stroke that runs in the family. My numbers were not good at my last appointment with my doctor. And have me seriousvinstructions to get my diet and health a priority. As moms and grandmothers we take care and nurture others but we need to also take care and eat healthy and excercise in order to be the strong women we are for others. Our office of 12?women all wore red today to honor women’s health . I love you in red. It truly is one of your best colors!

    Heart disease runs in my husband’s family. He is the second of 10. His dad died from it at age 45 and a brother died at age 46. All if his siblings have the disease. My husband had his first heart attack at age 45 and at age 54 he had open heart surgery and again after a staph infection attacked a valve they had replaced . He is now age 67 and by the grace of God will be able to give me many more years on this earth with him. We do not take any minute for granted and give God the glory. Love your emails as they brighten my day.

    My mother just passed away on December 29 from congestive heart failure and hypertension. She suffered from edema in her legs the last few months. Her legs became so swollen the skin split and she had open, weeping sores that wouldn’t heal. It was horrible to see her in such pain. I miss her terribly.

    Hi Tania my favourite is No. 5 😁 my husband has twin sisters (identical) and sadly at the age of 54 one died from heart disease she thought it was severe indigestion it turns out it runs in the family and now they all get checked regularly they all are in good health thank god 💖

  55. Love the different looks and such an important cause. Thank you for reminding everyone of the importance of heart disease in women. Have a blessed day.
