Local resident Sonja Bolton will be honored tonight at the Women with Heart Banquet at the Hopkins County Civic Center tonight from 5:30 to 7.
Heart disease claims the life of a woman every minute. It affects 43 million women in the United States and it’s estimated that 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Women With Heart is an annual program conceived to celebrate and honor women who have survived heart disease and triumphed with the help of CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances and the Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital.
It is a way for us to recognize our mothers, grandmothers, teachers, neighbors, friends and coworkers who are standing strong, as examples of bravery during the most difficult of times. We want to tell their stories and to be able to share them with others.
With your help, CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances and the Louis and Peaches Owen Heart Hospital can offer inspiration to the women of East Texas who are going through these trials and encourage even more to take the steps to prevent this fight from ever coming to their doorstep.
