Go Red for Women's Heart Health

Have you been seeing red today? If so, it could be for a good cause.
It's Go Red Day to help raise awareness of women's heart health...

Symptoms of heart trouble can be different in women than in men. According to the American Heart Association women may experience shortness of breath, pressure or pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen, dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting, upper back pressure or extreme fatigue. In Vestal today, a woman who suffered from a calcified aortic valve despite an active lifestyle warned women to not ignore their symptoms.

"I ignored some of my symptoms thinking that it was just part of an age situation. I would really encourage women to talk to their physicians if they start to feel fatigue that they haven't been feeling," said heart patient Candace Hamm.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women. The agency says the "Go Red" campaign over the past decade has helped save the lives of over 627,000 women.
