FOX 2's Jasmine Huda at the 'Go Red for Women' luncheon

You may be seeing red when you enter your office or the local supermarket Friday, but it's not because you can't stop that feeling of rage burning inside ... at least not this time.

Why is it National Wear Red Day? Instead, there's something else we want you to think about too - heart disease and the fact that it kills nearly one in three women each year.

When is National Wear Red Day?

Friday, February 2nd is national "Go Red For Women" day.

The non-profit organization is not only asking men and women to wear red, but they're also reminding people to know the signs of a heart attack. One way to raise awareness is through National Wear Red Day.


Since 2004, the retailer has raised a staggering $65 million for the American Heart Association's signature campaign! All donations support the fight against heart disease and stroke.

The good news is that heart disease and stroke may be prevented by understanding your family health history, knowing your numbers and making simple lifestyle changes. While cardiovascular diseases in the USA kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds, the good news is 80 percent of cardiac events may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. It's particularly devastating for women with 1 in 3 deaths each year.

Research, medical developments and education have helped mortality rates drop more than 50 percent over the past 30 years.
