Welcome to another edition of Patch Snap, where we highlight a picture of around Burlington or of Burlington residents out and about.
Today's Patch Snap comes from Rep. Charley Murphy, D-Burlington, who recently posted in this picture with the heart disease campaign Go Red for Women:
Representative Charley Murphy poses with his fellow legislators in support of Go Red for Women on Feb. 1 at the Massachusetts State House.
The Go Red For Women Campaign helps raise awareness among women and their number one killer, heart disease. Every year, more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. But, unlike cancer, the symptoms of heart disease aren’t as easy to recognize. They are often silent, hidden and misunderstood. There are currently some eight million women in the U.S living with heart disease.
The event featured remarks by Senator Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) and Representative Cory Atkins (D-Concord), co-chairs of the Caucus of Women Legislators, American Heart Association volunteers, Marcela Garcia and Lissa Potts and local heart survivor, Eva Gomez.
