the heart-attack signs may be sudden sweating, shortness of breath and nausea."

In 2007, at the Sister to Sister health fairs held throughout the United States, it is estimated that almost 40% of the 9,795 women screened found out that they had two or more risk factors for heart disease. Those factors included obesity, elevated blood pressure and dangerous levels of cholesterol. A significant number of the participants had been unaware of this before the screening, surveys conducted at the fairs showed.

"Getting a heart health screening may be the most important step we may ever take in saving our lives. Just fearing the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States isn't enough. It's important get a cardiovascular check up and follow a regime of diet and exercise and to adhere to any treatment that may be prescribed by one's physician," said the organization in its statement.

Sister to Sister: Everyone Has a Heart Foundation is a national grassroots, nonprofit foundation that educates women about heart disease and provides free cardiovascular risk screenings to encourage women to make lifestyle changes to prevent or reduce their risk of heart disease. http://www.sistertosister.org
