Rosalie Mayes, New Jersey

by Corinne O. on Monday, February 3, 2014

As a retired intensive care nurse, Rosalie Mayes was aware of the attention given to heart disease in men. She considers herself fortunate because her heart disease was discovered during a routine physical examination, allowing her to take action and manage her condition.

Rosalie is an American Heart Association Go Red for Women Survivor Ambassador and a You’re the Cure advocate dedicated to spreading awareness of the signs and symptoms of heart disease in women. She also advocates for individuals to "know their numbers," so they can take action to control their blood pressure and cholesterol and enthusiastically promotes healthy lifestyle change to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
