Throughout the year, our blog will feature AHA volunteer stories of survival and hope. We know there are thousands of stories like these - thats why we want to say “Thanks” to all of you for giving your time and sharing your lives with us. You can’t spell CURE without U! Thank you for all you do to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. YOU’RE THE CURE!

Do You See RED When You Look in the Mirror?!

When you woke up this morning, did you see RED? Today is National Wear Red Day, so hopefully you wore your favorite red attire and not only saw your reflection in the mirror this morning, but felt empowered to speak up to create awareness for heart disease.

So what now??! Decide to make a difference by joining our advocacy network, You're the Cure. Join You’re the Cure!

We engage a network of volunteers across the Midwest Affiliate through our advocacy network called “You’re the Cure”. This group of volunteers contacts their elected officials to help pass important heart-healthy policies in their state and across the nation. If you’d like to be a part of our network, you can visit to join.

Once you’re a part of You’re the Cure, you’ll receive e-mails that guide you on how to take action – from clicking on an alert that you can personalize and send to your lawmakers to talking points on what to say when making a call to a district office or visiting a lawmaker on legislation affecting heart or stroke issues. It’s a great resource to keep you up to speed with state and federal health legislation and the best part is, we offer it as a free service to the public. Feel free to share “You’re the Cure” with your friends/family/colleagues as well.
