February is American Heart Month, highlighting the critical issue of women’s heart health. Heart disease remains the #1 killer of women, though it often goes undetected.

Let me tell you about my dear friend Jane. Despite being a picture of health, Megan's world was turned upside down when she started feeling unusually fatigued and short of breath. She chalked it up to stress at first and powered through. But during a routine doctor’s visit, she received alarming news - she had a serious heart condition requiring immediate treatment.

I still vividly recall the utter shock on Megan’s face when she first told me. The disbelief that despite her healthy lifestyle, this could happen. The fear of what may come next. But also, the wake-up call to tune into her body and not take good health for granted.

Megan’s emotional journey motivates me to share her story. To help other women understand that we can’t rely on assumptions about our heart health, even if we feel fine. We need to be vigilant and advocate for screening and care so that our hearts deserve our attention.

From physical symptoms to lifestyle factors, knowledge is power for women’s heart health. Our team of compassionate experts is here to listen and offer personalized guidance. We want to equip you with the tools to make heart-smart choices - because your health matters.

Regardless of your gender identity, this February, do it for yourself and for all the Janes out there. Pledge to act, spread awareness, and empower the women you love to listen to their hearts. Together, we can make a change.
