Surviving The Fight Against Heart Disease and Stroke. 

This Past Saturday May 20th 2017 I had the honor of participating in American Heart Association’s 2017 Southern NJ Spring Heart Walk!! I took part in this walk in honor of my late Mom Mom, Beverly Jean Mays-Russell, and to help support the fight against heart disease and stroke. It is very important that we take our health serious. I lost my Mom Mom to heart complications. Did you guys know that: 

“Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly 50,000 African-American women annually.

Of African-American women ages 20 and older, 49 percent have heart diseases.

Only 1 in 5 African-American women believes she is personally at risk.

Only 52 percent of African-American women are aware of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.

Only 36 percent of African-American women know that heart disease is their greatest health risk.”

(Check out American Heart Association for more info.) 

Live a RAD life and take your health serious! 

In Loving Memory of Beverly Jean Mays-Russell
