Erlanger Newborns Wear Red Caps, Send Heartfelt Message To Moms

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

To create more awareness about heart disease - particularly in women – Erlanger partnered with members of the St. Elmo Presbyterian Church to craft tiny red caps for newborns at Erlanger East Hospital and Erlanger Baroness Hospital on Valentine’s Day. The red caps were placed on the newborns on Valentine’s Day, and a card was presented to mothers bearing this message: 

 

Dear Mommy,

I’m wearing this cute little red hat to remind you to love your heart like you love me.  Heart Disease is the number one killer of women.

So please take care of your heart, because I’m going need you a long time.
