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
