Asking for Help!

So, as many of you probably know by now...The reason I decided to become a cardiologist was mainly to help women. As I have stated time and time again, the public as a whole is undereducated about the prevalence of heart disease in women (its the #1 killer of us!) The American Heart Association has a wonderful campaign known as "Go Red for Women" which strives to educate the public about women's heart disease and how to prevent it. Seeing that this campaign is basically the entire reason for my career choice, it holds a special place in my heart.

The red dress is a trademark of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

So, what does all of this mean to you? Well..it means I need help. My American Heart Association chapter of the campaign in Florida is holding a big fundraiser breakfast on September 28th and my goal is to raise $5,000 prior to the event..and I am asking for your support and help. Any amount that you give will help me to meet my goal and help to raise awareness of heart disease in women.

Yours truly at a "Go Red"
 event earlier this year...;)

The link for donations is at the right of your screen here on my blog. Please leave a message on the donation website with your name so I can send out personal thank-yous!

Also, if you are donating on behalf of a loved one who lost her life to heart disease, please mention her name to show continued support

Thank you SO MUCH for not only supporting women, but also..me!

xo,
