NFL Moms Wilma McNabb and Gladys Bettis to Tackle Heart Disease in Women at the 2009 NFL Draft

DALLAS, April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Go Red For Women(R) is heading to the 2009 NFL Draft to announce its new partnership with the Professional Football Players Mothers' Association (PFPMA). NFL Moms Wilma McNabb, mother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, and Gladys Bettis, mother of Jerome "The Bus" Bettis, will announce the partnership in advance of the 2009 NFL Draft on Friday, April 24 at national sponsor and leading fundraiser, Macy's Herald Square store in New York City. The PFPMA has joined forces with Go Red For Women to raise awareness of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women in the U.S.

"As a retired R.N., I understand the severity of heart disease, which is why I'm excited that the PFPMA is joining Go Red For Women," said Wilma McNabb. "Together as mothers of NFL Players, we are able to lend a voice to a very worthy cause."

Gladys Bettis can speak from the heart on the subject of women and heart disease. After having heart surgery, she and her son are deeply dedicated to encouraging women to make the right personal choices to protect their hearts.

"My participation in this partnership gives me the opportunity to help women learn what I experienced the hard way," said Gladys Bettis. "As mothers, women often take care of the whole family, but don't make the time to protect their own hearts. Heart disease is largely preventable, but only if we choose to act."

"After losing my dad to a heart attack and seeing my mom struggle with heart surgery, I'm so proud that my mom and I can support the American Heart Association and PFPMA partnership," said Jerome Bettis. "Being more aware and knowing my family history provides me with the knowledge and the tools to better care for my health and the health of my family."
