Her HeartStory…
After attending an American Heart Association Conference. She met WomenHeart, shared her family’s story, and was selected as a National Spokeswoman for HeartHealth specifically for the Hispanic/Latino Market. WomenHeart, The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease is a non-profit patient advocacy organization that supports, educates and advocates on behalf of the 42 million American women living with or at risk of heart disease, the #1 killer of women. For more information visit http://www.womenheart.org/

Thanks to WomenHeart, insisting she see a Cardiologist, they saved her life. Fall 2014 she was first detected with a Heart Murmur, later diagnosed with Valvular Regurgitation aka “Leaky Valves”. It’s a condition where the valves don’t close properly making her heart work harder. Now Leticia has her own heart story. Speaking as a caregiver and advocate now patient heart champion.

Sharing her HeartStory Nationwide…
Leticia Madrigal MA, National Spokesperson for WomenHeart teamed up with a stellar lineup including a bilingual Cardiologist, Fitness Instructor, and bilingual Blood Pressure Screener for the HeartOfFitnessTour para La Mujer Hispana all in the name of Heart Health thanks to Burlington.

Un reciente estudio indica que por lo menos el 71% de las mujeres hispanas tienen por lo menos un factor de riesgo asociado con enfermedades cardiacas. Para mas información visita http://www.womenheart.org/

Knowing is Not Enough…

Ámate Ahora says Que Viva El Amor! for our very own Dr. Estella Hernandez MD & Carlos Martinez MBA from NutriMedicos

“Cuando por fin se encuentran dos almas,
Que durante tanto tiempo se han buscado
una a otra entre el gentío,
Cuando advierten que son parejas,
Que se comprenden y corresponden,
En una palabra, que son semejantes,
surge entonces para siempre una unión vehemente y pura como ellas mismas,
una unión que comienza en la tierra y perdura en el cielo.
Esa unión es amor…” Victor Hugo

Ámate Ahora wishes you and your beautiful family a lifetime of love, health, vitality and adventure!

Thank you NutriMedicos
