The power of sisterhood enabled Cindy to transform her life and health. In February 2012, she joined Follow the Fifty, a Heart Truth-funded program in northeast Connecticut with her daughter. Together, along with 200 other women, they pledged to become models of heart health. In 9 months, Cindy lost 77 pounds, lowered her body mass index by 11 points, and decreased her blood pressure to 110/72. Cindy’s heart health pledge has become an oath for life.
