February Is Heart Disease Awareness Month

February is the National Month of Observance and Awareness for Heart Disease. Being the leading cause of death in the United States, killing a person every 34 seconds (1), it is imperative for each of us to educate ourselves on this very serious disease. What better time to do this than now?

I, for one, was diagnosed with heart disease when I was in my 20’s and I feel fortunate. One might ask how in the world I could feel fortunate that I have heart disease. Well, it’s not the fact that I have heart disease that I feel fortunate about. It’s the fact that I found out that I have it. You see, thousands of people every year die suddenly because they don’t know the ‘signs’ of an impending heart attack. In other words, they haven’t become educated on the matter. Being diagnosed motivated me to learn everything I possibly could about it. Not only was I able to begin appropriate treatment but I’m aware of danger signs to look for and what to do should they arise. To be in your 30’s and on Heart/Blood Pressure medication isn’t fun but it beats the alternative.

The important thing to remember here is that Awareness and Education could save your or a Loved One’s life and you don’t have to be diagnosed with heart disease to obtain that knowledge. Make February 2009, the time to educate yourself on heart disease. A good place to start is the American Heart Association website.

Of course, another key to ‘getting the word out’ about Heart Disease is raising and promoting Awareness. Awareness Gift Boutique has created some awesome designs that we will be releasing just in time for Heart Disease Awareness Month. We’ll be posting some of our new Heart Disease Awareness t-shirts, gifts, and apparel in the next day, or two, so be sure to check back for a Sneak Peak 🙂

January Awareness Observances: Cervical, Thyroid, Glaucoma

January is the official Month of Observance for Cervical Health Awareness, Thyroid Health Awareness, and Glaucoma Awareness, all very important Causes that don’t get enough attention in my opinion. That is, until a person or his/her family member is faced with one of them. Why don’t we take a moment this month and learn a little bit about each of these medical issues BEFORE there’s a need to? Our newfound knowledge will not only equip us with the ability to identify the early signs & symptoms of these illnesses but will enable us to be able to understand & empathize with those who are battling one of them. Although September is the official Month for Gynecological Cancers, which includes Cervical Cancer, and for Thyroid Cancer, Awareness Gift Boutique is releasing a few new designs for these Causes in light of Cervical Health and Thyroid Health Month. And, for the first time, we are introducing a Glaucoma Awareness line.  Here’s a sneak peek of some of our newest releases:
