I was a member of the Circle of Red for the American Heart Association this year.
We held the Tri-Cities Go Red For Women Luncheon today, and all the members wore a red dress.
My red dress is from Macy's.
Macy’s is committed to raising women’s awareness of heart
disease and helping them live longer healthier lives.
Thanks to the generosity of their customers and associates, Macy’s has contributed more than $55 million to Go Red for Women since 2004.
It was great to see my young friend Jurnee Carr, Miss Tennessee International. We have shared the runway as models in the past.
Hannah Everhart is our beautiful Miss Johnson City. We have also walked for local fashion shows together.
Those are not my caged shoes, but aren't they awesome?
I am shown below with some of the other Circle of Red Members.
The more a woman knows about heart disease, the better chance she has of beating it. The first facts you need to know are very serious: Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. Fortunately, we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.
Go Red For Women inspires women to make lifestyle changes, mobilize communities and shape policies to save lives. United, we are working to improve the health of all women.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
