BE SMART. LOVE YOUR HEART.
February is Heart Research Month, a month where all Australians are encouraged to make their heart health a priority and proactively participate in the fight against heart disease by raising funds for life-saving heart research. To celebrate, Heart Research Australia’s REDFEB campaign promotes a healthy lifestyle and raises much needed funds for first-stage, innovative research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.
I urge everyone to support this wonderful charity this month. A friend of mine was touched by heart disease and it was a real eye opener for me. He was young (30’s), super fit (tri athlete style fit, not just run of the mill fit) didn’t smoke and had a healthy diet. Pretty much he did everything they tell you to do! He would have been the last person you would ever imagine would have a heart attack – but sadly he did. Fortunately he lives to tell the tale, but it really made me aware that heart disease is something that can happen to anyone. My friend is now a wonderful supporter and ambassador for REDFEB.
