Employees Wear Red to Raise Awareness for Heart Disease and Stroke
Employees across Cook Children's Health Care System participated in National Wear Red Day®, the American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, on Friday, Feb. 4, to raise awareness for women's heart health.
"Today I WEAR RED & GIVE in honor of my HEART HERO, my son, Colton.
He was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Defects at age 7 by his WONDERFUL Cook Children’s PCP…
And his heart was “fixed” by THE AMAZING Cook Children’s Heart Center’s Dr. Tam a few short months later.
He is far from “out of the woods” and continues to be monitored by some of THE WORLD’S BEST (Cook Children’s) Cardiologists…
for now, we count our blessings and raise Heart Health Awareness every February."
