While heart disease is often viewed as “an old person’s disease”, it is the third cause of death for those ages 25-44, the second leading cause of death for those ages 45-64 and it is the #1 killer of those above the age of 65. In many cases coronary heart disease can be prevented; knowing the risk factors and taking early action to maintain a healthy lifestyle is imperative. “Our goal is to help increase awareness and funding for clinical research and programs that help educate men and women about how to lower their risk of developing the disease,” said Melanie Marshall, co-founder and creative director of Storksak and Babymel.
