When I was diagnosed with heart disease in 2007, it took me a while before I could wrap my head around it. While I was glad to finally know what was wrong, I was completely overwhelmed as to what it all meant.
Overcome by feelings of worry and fear, I started to panic. With these thoughts swirling through my head, my darling husband suggested that I write them all down. I’ll never forget what he said that day in December, “Perhaps your story could help other women who suffer from heart disease”.
On December 6, 2009, I began Rebecca’s Heart.
It surprised me to learn how many women are in the dark about heart disease. I’ve heard from dozens of women who were thrilled to learn that they weren’t alone. So many with strange symptoms that doctors passed over for stress; so many survivors of bypass or multiple heart attacks; some at a very young age.
Apparently my little blog with just over 3000 hits is making a difference.
Now, I need your help.
I am proud to say that I am involved with EmpowHER’s 1000Women Campaign. Through the 1000Women campaign, EmpowHER is recruiting 1,000 women who will then each tell 1,000 women about this campaign. The goal is to create the biggest movement for women’s health and wellness in recent history!
Please support this fantastic event by clicking here . My story can be found under ‘Rebeccaheart’. If you like what you’ve read, please vote for me. If you think others would benefit from it, please pass it on.
When the goal of contacting 1,000,000 women is reached, EmpowHER will donate $50,000 towards women’s health research, and YOU will have had everything to do with that!
Thank you for adding your voice to a very worthy cause.
