In support of February Heart Month, EC Gallery has partnered with Go Red For Women San Diego. Go Red For Women is the American Heart Association’s national movement to end heart disease and stroke in women. Throughout the month of February, EC Gallery will be supporting the San Diego Go Red for Women with Bella Hearts.
Eight-year-old Isabella (Bella) Thorn has been painting since she was old enough to first hold a brush at 16 months. To date, Isabella has created more than 400 Bella Hearts, showing that even the smallest among us can have a huge impact. Each Bella Heart is an original creation made by hand by Isabella. She has collectors all over the globe and her work can be seen in galleries in Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, San Diego, and Breckenridge, Colorado.
Bella will have a show at EC Gallery Seaport Village on January 30, which will serve as the kick-off for the San Diego Chapter of the American Cancer Society’s Go Red For Women. In addition, EC Gallery will be donating a large painting of Bella Hearts to the San Diego Go Red campaign as an additional way to support the mission and cause.
Heart disease and stroke affect women of all ethnicities; mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are all at risk. An estimated 44 million women in the U.S. are affected by cardiovascular diseases. In fact, 1 in 3 deaths among women each year are caused by heart disease and stroke – more than all cancers combined.
Fortunately, 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action embracing a healthy lifestyle. Go Red For Women inspires women to make lifestyle changes, mobilize communities and shape policies to save lives and improve the health of all women.
