Starting February 1, the Red Couch Campaign encourages survivors and those impacted by the disease to sit on a red couch and share their stories. Matt Hooper is with the American Heart Association in Birmingham. He says some participants are reluctant to share their stories.</P> <P>“We do occasionally run into folks who have a story and are reticent to share it either because the memory is too fresh or it’s something they just don’t want to talk about,” says Hooper.
