Today Bayer HealthCare, WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, and actress Vanessa Williams announced a national campaign that leverages the link between women and their handbags.
Taking aspirin at the first signs or symptoms of a heart attack could potentially be the difference between life and death by stopping additional blood clots from forming which could further inhibit blood flow.
The HandbagsAndHearts effort is urging women to take a pledge to carry aspirin at all times to be prepared for a sudden heart attack. For every pledge made and every share of that pledge, Bayer HealthCare will donate $1 for pledge, $2 for share to WomenHeart up to a total of $200,000. To learn more and to take the pledge, visit www.HandbagsAndHearts.com.
Happy Thoughtful Thursday!
