TMF Seeking Nominees for Women With Heart Events in Four East Texas Counties

TMFHC Seeking votes for "Women With Heart" in four east Texas counties

TYLER, TX - According to statistics from the American Heart Association, heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases cause approximately half of all deaths in American women and one out of three women over age 65 has some form of heart disease.  No longer is it considered a disease suffered only by men.

In recognition of February as National Heart Month, Trinity Mother Frances Hospitals and Clinics and CBS 19 will present ‘Women With Heart’ awards.  The award highlights and honors a total of eight women - two from Cherokee, Smith, Wood, and Henderson County - who are battling, or have battled and conquered, cardiac disease with the help of Trinity Mother Frances Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital and a spirit that has inspired others.

Throughout the month of November we will be accepting nominations for eligible women. Please visit or, or one of our Facebook pages, to learn more about the event and nominate the ‘Women With Heart’ in your life today.

TMF and CBS 19 will seek nominations throughout the month of November, call for community votes in December, and honor the women during a special evening in their respective county in February. The dinner will educate attendees about their risks for heart disease.
