Triad Goes Red For Heart Disease Awareness

GREENSBORO, NC -- Is your heart healthy? If someone asked you that question, would you know how to answer them?

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to heart disease, so it's easy to be fooled.

February is National Heart Month and heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States.

So on Monday, the Good Morning Show crew dedicated some time to debunking myths about heart disease and showing you ways to help yourself and others fend off heart disease.

Watch the video to see what Sarah Fedele, with the American Heart Association, had to say about the many myths of heart disease.

Also on Monday, Cristie Burnette, RN, BFN -Cardiac Emergency Regional Manager for Novant Health, showed the crew the importance of Hands Only CPR.

Burnette showed us how you can actually end up saving the life of someone you know and love.

Her quick tip - The song, "Stayin' Alive," has the exact rhythm to do Hands-Only CPR successfully!

Missy Russell, a local heart attack survivor, also shared her story with the crew Monday morning. Watch the video to see why raising awareness is so important to her.

Friday, February 7, is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about Heart Disease.
