Nominees are being accepted for Women with Heart–February 7th from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m., at the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center CHRISTUS-Mother Frances Hospital Sulphur Springs will honor Women With Heart. The event will be one of several such events across the CHRISTUS hospital system.
The local hospital is seeking nominations of women who have had heart issues, been seen by one of the providers at Advanced Heart Care, and has a great success story. One woman will be chosen to receive Women with Heart Award at the February event.
Heart disease claims the life of a woman every minute. It affects 43 million women in the United States and it’s estimated that 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Women With Heart is an annual program conceived to celebrate and honor women who have survived heart disease and triumphed with the help of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances and the Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital.
It is a way for family to recognize mothers, grandmothers, teachers, neighbors, friends and coworkers who are standing strong, as examples of bravery during the most difficult of times.
The various events are set to offer inspiration to the women of East Texas who are going through these trials and encourage even more to take the steps to prevent this fight from ever coming to their doorstep.
