According to the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, approximately 1.2 million people in the United States have heart attacks. About 42% of heart attacks result in death among men and women in the United States. More people could survive or recover from heart attacks if they received help and treatment faster.
Friday February 3, 2012 is National Wear Red Day®. The employees at Filters Fast will be celebrating this day by wearing red to show our support for women’s heart disease awareness. We invite you to join us in solidarity by wearing “red” on this day for the women in your life (family and friends) who either survived or succumbed to heart disease. Although we recognize this day as a movement for women’s heart disease awareness, since February is observed as American Heart Month, you can still honor a male family member or friend as well.
Because heart disease literally tugs at our heartstrings, we want to further show our support by inviting you to post a photo of you or a group photo of your schoolmates, sports team, book club, Bridge Club, golf partners or co-workers on our Facebook or Google+ page wearing red on Friday February 3rd in support of National Wear Red Day®. Encourage your family and friends to do the same.
Other names associated with “heart attack” includes: Myocardial Infarction (MI), Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), Acute Coronary Syndrome, Coronary Thrombosis and Coronary Occlusion. Confront heart disease before it attacks you! We look forward to you sharing your National Wear Red Day® celebrations and memories with us!
