As I recognize the second anniversary of my heart attack, I will do the same thing. Appreciate all the smallest moments we tend to glance over, forgive the wrongdoings as the pain of remembering them weighs on our hearts and live every moment! Breathe in, breathe out. Smile. Hug. Love. Laugh. Live.
Every year, I get chills when I stand on the stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center and look out over the sea of red dresses. Everyone is there for the same reason: to celebrate and honor those who have worked tirelessly to improve the heart health of America and fight heart disease, the #1 killer of women.
Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in this country, and that it's more deadly than all forms of cancer combined? According to the American Heart Association, 43 million women in the U.S. are affected by heart disease, and it is the cause of one in three women's deaths every year.
