GREENFIELD — For 10 years, the American Heart Association has put on a campaign to raise awareness of heart disease in women.

It’s been a decade of little red dresses and inspiring stories from those who have overcome illness. But on a more serious note, it’s been a movement to remind women that heart disease is their No. 1 killer – and 80 percent of the time, it’s preventable.

Helping to spread the word are the “Go Red for Women” ambassadors, whose motto this year is “Real Women, Real Change.”

Each year, the program seeks to honor those who have overcome challenges and are living heart-healthy lifestyles. The ambassadors serve as representatives of the campaign and work to empower others to take steps toward healthier living.

This year, the campaign has recognized two Greenfield women whose stories, organizers say, serve as an inspiration to others.
