Roberta's Las Vegas Real Estate Blog: Las Vegas Goes Red

Las Vegas Goes Red

 

Las Vegas has a new look today.

Last night the Las Vegas sign changed from it's chasing orange marquee lights to red, to show support for the American Heart Assn.'s 'Go Red for Women', the Feb 1 National Wear Red Day for awareness that heart disease is the #1 cause of death for us ladies.

The reason this awareness is needed is because women's syptoms are often different from  those of men, and theirs have been the standard. Instead of chest and arm pain, women may have more back pain and nausea, thinking they may only have a flu bug.

The event will run through Feb. 8 and the bulbs will be removed each day.  They will be available for sale, boxed with a certificate of authenticity through Official Las Vegas Light.

I'm wearing my red today, so is Las Vegas, I hope you are too! Or at least take a moment to find out more for yourself, friends, and loved ones.

If you are interested in relocating to Las Vegas or would like information on Las Vegas real estate, please email me roberta@search4lasvegashomes.com  or call me at 702-354-8988.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Our office put out a memo about this Go Red for Women. I had not heard of this promotion before but it seems Vegas is up on the latest word. Good for you all Roberta.

Roberta- Great awareness post. I had no idea that heart disease was number 1. I just assumed it was Breast cancer. Thank you for the post.

Mark:  I also thought that breast cancer was the number 1 disease until this campaign.  Here is a quote from the American Heart Association:

 "Heart disease isn't just a man's disease. Heart attack, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases are devastating to women, too. In fact, coronary heart disease, which causes heart attack, is the leading cause of death for American women. Many women believe that cancer is more of a threat, but they're wrong. Nearly twice as many women in the United States die of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases as from all forms of cancer, including breast cancer."

Roland:  We do need to spread the word!  This was an eye opener for me.
