Wear red to show heart disease awareness

To help increase awareness of heart disease in women, members of Salem Regional Medical Center's (SRMC) staff wore red on February 2 in support of the American Heart Association's National Wear Red Day.

The American Heart Association is asking women to "Go Red!". The Department of Public Health and Social Services ranks heart disease as the No. 1 cause of death, accounting for 31.1 percent of all deaths on Guam.

Smoking boosts heart disease risks by 20 percent.

More information about how to volunteer or make a donation to Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association can be found at the organization's website. "With women in general and the quality of healthcare we sometimes get, we are often brushed off with our symptoms, thinking it's anxiety driven". Lyn Durst, RN at UPMC Hamot, says, "one in four women end up with some type of cardiovascular disease and most of the symptoms of heart disease are silent and then it's too late".

She also encouraged women to know their overall cholesterol count, their blood pressure, their levels of LDL and HDL cholesterol, their triglycerides, and blood sugar numbers. "It's important to get the message out that there are things you can do to prevent heart disease". That's exactly what 41-year-old Tiffany Gholston is doing. Add to that the fact that Americans suffer around 735,000 heart attacks each year, and it's clear to see that we as a nation need to cut the excuses and start giving our hearts a little more love and attention.

"I was first diagnosed with a heart problem when I was six years old", said Christensen.

"If I can help one person that's the reward to me", Parcell said.

"They said, 'We had to pull in a lot of expertise and we made a bunch of calls around, '" she said.

"Women usually are the backbones of the family and take care of children", Zeglin said. "I'm very, very thankful for this life", Tiffany says.

Michelle, a beloved employee at WISIWYG, passed away a few months ago from heart disease, but her story continues to live on.
