Hace tres años mi papá murió de acaloramiento, tubo un ataque fulminante y mi mamá es recipiente de un marcapasos por el descuido del Diabetes. Te Pregunto, Conocemos un familiar, amigo, un vecino que a muerto de una condición preventible? 600,000 personas mueren de enfermedades cardiovasular en E.U. eso es 1 en 4 muertes al año. 70% de las mujeres latinas tienen un factor. Y 15% tienen tres factores.

Como recién nombrada Campiona de Salud Cardiovascular por WomenHeart. Aprendí después de ver un Cardiólogo que tengo un soplo. Ahora se que es un problema estructural/de naciemiento. WomenHeart ha sido una gran ayuda y apoyo. Tambien soy Co-Lider de un grupo de apoyo de WomenHeart en RUSH- Oak Park Medical Center, mensual.

El No Saber es Problema!
El factor #1 de mortalidad en la mujer hispana es la enfermedad cardiovascular.
