Nearly 48 million women in the United States are living with or are at risk for heart disease. Heart disease remains the leading cause of death for women in the United States.

Research shows that women who have close family relationships and good friendships make better recoveries from heart events. WomenHeart is a national organization dedicated to advancing women’s heart health through advocacy, community education and patient support. They offer a range of support services to help women heart disease survivors live healthier lives.
