Go Red For Women® celebrates the energy, passion and power we have as women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women, taking the life of 1 in 3 women each year. This means women just like you - mothers, sisters, friends - are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don't know what you know: heart disease kills.
Women have come together here in the fight against heart disease in women. Take your seat at the table with dedicated women and men just like you. Hear their survivor stories, learn how heart disease affects a family and how you can help stop heart disease in our lifetime. Share our mission to fight the No. 1 killer of women.
Make It Your Mission to fight heart disease in women. By sharing this commitment, together we can help save lives. Be a part of this extraordinary day.
This year’s 2012 Crystal Heart honoree for the Go Red York County event is Joan Gordon. As the Executive Director of the Biddeford Free Clinic, she dedicated her hard-working hours and years to running the clinic and elevated the facility that now provides care and treatment to people around the state of Maine. Her dedication, direction and passion are enormous and her drive is for the people in the community.
The Biddeford Free Clinic –“Neighbors Helping Neighbors” treats uninsured patients in York County and beyond- servicing over 500 patients a year. Joan lives and breathes the passion for helping others. She “pounds the pavement” spreading the word and getting financial support for the Clinic and its programs. Her energy level is impenetrable. With her great life experience, before “retirement”, she is able to guide the clinic with new programs utilizing UNE medical students, specialists, physicians, dentists for the new Dental Clinic, and volunteers of all types.
The volunteers of the American Heart Association and the Go Red York County Committee are honored to award Joan as this year’s Crystal Heart. Congratulations Joan!
