What's Your Story?

This year during American Heart Month, The Heart Truth® is honoring the shared stories of women, like you, who have been touched by heart disease. For more than a decade, The Heart Truth has been uniting women in the fight against their #1 killer—increasing awareness of their personal risk factors and empowering them to take healthy steps to reduce their risk. Every day, as new women make healthier choices to protect their hearts, the power of The Heart Truth grows.

On February 6, 2013, celebrities will walk the runway at The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection℠ Fashion Show, sharing the stories that inspired them to join our heart health movement. In stunning red dresses donated by some of the finest fashion designers, these women will bring to life our collective power as a nationwide community taking action to protect women's hearts. Visit The Heart Truth Facebook page to watch the fashion show unfold live from your computer, and become a model for heart health by sharing your story and learning about the risk factors that may affect you. Motivate other women to take healthy steps in their lives to lower their risk for heart disease, and remind them that heart disease is preventable.

The Red Dress Collection Fashion Show would not be possible this year without the American College of Cardiology (ACC), which has partnered with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to bring the important message of The Heart Truth to millions of American women.
