Capture Her Heart (Story)

One of the biggest killers is heart disease.   Of course, a heart attack is sudden but heart disease, in general, is a slow killer.   Unfortunately, people don't become very aware of what to do to keep your heart healthy until most of the damage has been done.  Of course, there are times when heart disease is genetic.  However, there is so much we can do to make the most of our heart by eating healthy, not smoking, and moderate exercise.

FreshPromise.Net is a site that raises awareness about heart disease, but also has a neat interactive project. You can donate your points that you would normally register at Fresh Funds to the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement January 15th and Feburary 27th. Fresh Funds allows you to enter the "points" on the back of selected Chiquita and Fresh Express items and use them to enter drawings and more.

Why not men? It has long been known that men suffer from heart disease, but it is often a silent killer in women as the treatment that works on men may not be as affective for women, and it is a cause of illness that is growing in women at a faster rate.

Women have a chance to enter and share their story about how they have changed their life by making healthier choices. They will receive 40 Fresh Funds bonus points for sharing.  Maybe she will use it to enter and win some great stuff on Fresh Points.  Perhaps she may also donate them right to the American Heart Association and increase her support for free!  Tell someone you love about it today!
