Joannie Rochette Heart Your Health Campaign

Joannie Rochette is a Canadian bronze medal figure skater
Last year at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, her mom died suddenly of heart disease
days before she was to compete

Joannie skated for her mom and won her country the bronze medal

her goal now is to spread awareness about heart disease
It is the number one killer of women in north America - over all the cancers combined.

tell someone you love about the risk of heart disease
and encourge your family members to go to the doctor regularly - even if they think nothing is wrong
high blood pressure is called the silent killer because it often presents no signs
until it ultimatly leads to stroke or heart attack
