New Orleans Go Red For Women Shows Big Heart
 

Go Red for Women goes well beyond women wearing red.

It is a day reminding the nation that women are vulnerable to many of life’s ailments—from certain types of cancer to heart attacks.

 

On Thursday, the American Heart Society held its local Go West for Women luncheon at the Sheraton Hotel on Canal Street to a packed audience or shall we say a sea of Red.

Below are photos of the event and a Bayoubuzz video giving just a glimpse of what transpired at this painful yet celebratory event.

Also below is a short clip from one of the speakers who reflected upon being born with a hole in her heart and how her mother took care of her through the years.  Unfortunately, part of her story is now a swath of the challenges of our national red fabric of life.
