Here's a Toast to a Healthy Heart!

I encourage you to exercise daily, incorporate a well-balance diet, go to your annual doctor's visit (and if something doesn't feel right at any given time get checked out), laugh a lot and stress less, develop positive relationships and educate others about heart disease. 

Attending KMK Productions' "Power Women's Brunch" in Chesapeake, VA, has really got me thinking. We all know someone who has been affected by heart disease whether it's a family member, friend, co-worker, neighbor or you. We were present to gain more insight on the effects of heart disease among African-American women and to support the American Heart Association's "Go Red" initiative. Did you know that it is the NUMBER 1 cause of death among African-American women.

I had the esteemed pleasure of meeting Miss Gabrielle "Bri" Pinkney at the event. The 11 year old is a Heart Ambassador for the American Heart Association in which  travels around the country to speak about heart disease and heart defects.She delivered a powerful and thoughtful message to the packed room of women all dolled up in red ensembles. 

Let us be proactive in our health and practice preventive measures. I want to be around to see my children's children grow. How about you?! Thanks for the invitation Kim Wimish!
