Breast Cancer

Many women believe that cancer is more of a threat, but they're wrong. Nearly twice as many women in the United States die of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases as from all forms of cancer, including breast cancer. Cardiovascular diseases affect more women than men and are responsible for more than 40% of all deaths in American women.

But prevention can save lives.

  • Learn about how heart disease affects women.
  • Modify the risk factors that are under your control.
  • Pay attention to what you can do in every decade of your life to be more heart healthy.
  • Take stock of your heart health and commit to some meaningful lifestyle changes.

Find tips to help you in preventing heart disease.
