Delaware Unites to Fight Heart Disease

Staff Report

Many Delaware businesses, government offices and civic organizations are showing their support of the American Heart Association’s efforts to fight heart disease and stroke during the month of February. Their buildings are illuminated with red lights as part of the year’s “City Goes Red” initiative. You can identify these businesses during daylight hours by the red dress cut-out in front of the building.

Thanks to the efforts of the AHA’s Circle of Red Chair and Administrative Director of Operations for Bayhealth’s Cardiovascular Service Line, Louie Phillips, and her committee, the list of participating organizations includes Bayhealth – Kent General and Milford Memorial; Beebe Medical Center; Christiana Care; St. Francis Hospital; and Nanticoke Health Services. Businesses, government offices and civic organizations in Smyrna, Dover, Milford, Georgetown, Seaford, Lewes as well asLegislative Hall in Dover, and Dover Air Force Base are also standing strong with the American Heart Association.

For 10 years, women have been fighting individually and together as part of the Go Red for Women movement. More than 627,000 women’s lives have been saved, but the fight is far from over. Heart disease affects more women than men and is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined. However, the strength of mothers, sisters, daughters, and friends fighting side by side is more powerful than any killer. It’s time to shout louder, stand stronger, and demand change.
