As the No. 1 killer of women, heart disease has personally touched the lives of many people. As chair of the upcoming 2014 Go Red for Women luncheon, Penny Pennington, a principal at Edward Jones, realized how much it had affected her own family: Her grandmother died at age 55 of a heart attack, along with other family members who have been affected. “As I learned more about heart disease in women, I found out that it is likely that I will have a personal experience with heart disease either myself or through someone close to me.
