The Circle of Red

I am very proud to be a member of The Circle of Red and Go Red For Women in the Tri-Cities for 2016.






Go Red For Women, is doing everything we can to fight heart disease in women. We’re providing life-saving information to women of all ages and ethnicities, we’re increasing gender-focused medical research, and we provide a tight community of like-minded champions who have banded together to form an unstoppable army against heart disease in women.




We held our kick-off meeting last evening. I wore the perfect red Ashley Tunic sweater from J.Jill with black pants by Loir of Paris from a boutique in Knoxville called The Paris Apartment.




After five or cocktail attire need not mean an uncomfortable slinky dress (you already know I am not a lover of dresses). A fabulous pair of great fitting pants, with a luxurious sweater and sexy shoes and I am ready for any evening event.




I love the option of shawl worn across the neck with the ends flowing down the back for an evening wrap which is ready when you need a bit extra warmth.

My most important message to you is to take care of your body by eating a mostly plant-based diet and get some exercise every day. Heart disease is the number one killer of women, it kills more women than all forms of cancer combined, and it kills more women than men. Heart disease victims often don’t even know they have it, so they don’t get treated or make healthy lifestyle changes.


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

Go Red for Women


The 2015 Tri-Cities Go Red for Women Luncheon was held in Kingsport this week.



Go Red for Women's Circle of Red is a powerful, passionate group of people dedicated to making an impact in our community's fight against heart disease.





Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in women. Yet, only 1 in 5 American women believe that heart disease is her greatest health threat. 





Here are more unsettling facts:

Heart disease causes 1 in 3 women’s deaths each year, killing approximately one woman every minute.
90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease and the gap between men and women’s survival continues to widen.
The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women vs. men, and are often misunderstood.
While 1 in 31 American women dies from breast cancer each year, 1 in 3 dies of heart disease.





Learn more about how to prevent heart disease here.



There are three very powerful ways you can help, and committing to even one you will make a difference: 
Advocate for healthier hearts, starting with your own.
Spread the word by sharing what you know about heart health with other women.
Support Go Red For Women with your time and resources.
