February is American Heart Month: a month dedicated to raising awareness of heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year, killing approximately one woman every 80 seconds.
I know facts and statistics are important- even imperative to funding research, educating the public and developing drugs to assist patients. Yet, my primary interest and what I like to share is the people who are effected by cardiovascular disease. And sadly, there are plenty of them.

Thirty days of Heart & Stroke Survival Stories to inspire, educate and get you engaged in the conversation during Heart Month!
I’m continuously amazed at the strength, resiliency and passion of cardiovascular and stroke survivors and caregivers. Clearly, with incidence numbers so high, there are many people affected by these diseases…I’m fortunate to know an army of the most dedicated ones.
Serving as a longtime volunteer with the American Heart Association, I have made meaningful connections with many volunteers and advocates, and have ultimately learned that I am not alone. I’ve lost much from four strokes, two brain surgeries and a rare disease diagnosis, but gained even more: perspective, inner strength, a deep faith, unconditional family & friends and a network of peers who have overcome similar obstacles. I’m thrilled to introduce you to some of these incredible people over the next month. Please check out www.facebook.com/ISurvivorLisaDeck daily in February!
I reached out to my friends and network of people involved in the “Heart World” and am thrilled at so many quick and enthusiastic responses. Please learn about these heart heroes and the difference they are making. I truly believe in the harnessing of positive energy through shared connections. These heroes are just living their lives but ultimately making our communities better by sharing their challenges and victories.
Happy Heart Month! Please don’t forget to Wear Red & Raise Your Voice on National Wear Red Day – Friday, February 3, 2017. Please use the hashtag #GoRedWearRed and tag me (@ISurvivorLisaDeck) in your pictures.
Like I did last year, I hope to make a collage of all the people who are going red and making a difference!
