From my Heart to yours – Go Red for Women AND CHILDREN

Congenital heart defects may produce symptoms at birth, during childhood, or not until adulthood. Other congenital defects may cause no symptoms.

About 500,000 adults in the U.S. have congenital heart disease.

The risk of having a child with congenital heart disease may double if a parent or a sibling has a congenital heart defect.

Telling Cigarettes to “Butt Out!” – My experience with quitting smoking…

It’s been 1 year for me that I QUIT. I am a non-smoker. I still think about smoking more often then not. I no longer have that horrible physical withdrawal, and it is a mental game, I know from experience I am no safe from it. If I were to even take 1 puff, it would catapult me back to the vicious cycle of being a smoker and wanting to quit. I know the statistics and refuse to be one of them. I know this time I quit for me and my children. Not an excuse, but I quit for my LIFE.
