Join us in supporting Go Red For Women®
When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure.
Did you know that in the U.S., cardiovascular diseases kill approximately one woman every 80 seconds?
The good news is that 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Let’s unite - together we can prevent heart disease and stroke.
Since 2011, JTV has partnered with the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement to support the fight against heart disease. JTV has promoted the'Love Your Heart' comprehensive campaign to increase awareness, educate viewers about the risks of heart disease and raise funds for this important intiative. More than $375,000 has been raised over the past seven years and these funds have gone directly to Go Red For Women to help fund important research and educational programs.
"Heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined, and many women are unaware of the signs and symptoms," said Tim Matthews, CEO of JTV. "The majority of our viewers are women so we are thrilled to help Go Red For Women raise awareness on the importance of knowing the risks of heart disease and stroke."
