It was a ton of fun being a guest of my friend Charla Krupp, keynote speaker for the Go Red for Women Luncheon to promote heart health. I learned a lot: women's symptoms for heart attacks are quite different from men's. They include fatigue, indigestion | nausea, and possible jaw tightness, all of which can be dismissed as due to stress. If you experience these, get a physical, and pass it on please. That gorgeous lady on the right? Priscilla had us all in tears as she recounted that, despite being a cheerleader & volleyball player in high school, years later, she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure which a simple EKG administered 11 years prior could have uncovered. Further, after her heart stopped, she received a transplant and is now around to see her daughter Delisha grow up. Want to know more? Visit the Go Red for Women website. And don't forget what my anti-aging activist friend Charla Krupp advises in her best seller, "How Not to Look Old": pink lipstick, no smoking, white teeth.....yes "getting older sucks, Girlfriend, but you can do something about it".
