Did you know heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year?
That’s approximately one woman every minute! There are so many misconceptions about heart disease in women and they could be putting you or your loved ones at risk. The reality is heart disease affects women of all ages and all backgrounds…but even if a woman has a family history of heart disease, there’s plenty she can do to dramatically reduce her risk.
Raising awareness of how to reduce heart disease risk has saved more than 670,000 women from heart disease, and 300 fewer are dying per day. So the more we come together and the more we take action, the more lives we save.
Let’s Go Red for Women
With these staggering statistics in mind, the Custom team comes together annually to raise awareness and funds for women’s heart health on National Wear Red Day. For every team member that wears red on this important day, Custom donates $5 to the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women. Every bit helps as the foundation is hoping to raise $2,000,000.

We’re happy to announce the Custom Home Health and Hospice team came together to raise, $340.
