2008 a Year of Growth and Unprecedented Service for The Larry King Cardiac Foundation
Date:1/22/2009

ROCKVILLE, Md., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2008, The Larry King Cardiac Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding life-saving cardiac care to individuals with no health insurance, increased the number of men and women served by 120 percent over last year and continued to expand its national network of partner hospitals.

By directly investing donated funds into individual medical procedures, the Foundation helped save the lives of 313 patients last year. The Foundation also partnered with Life Line Screening to screen and counsel over 2,000 people in various cities nationwide to determine their risk of heart disease and guide them toward appropriate treatment, if applicable.

In September 2008, the Foundation forged an important partnership with Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Rush joins 11 other premier cardiac centers in the country that have been selected to partner with the Foundation. The Foundation plans to add two more hospital partners in the U.S. in 2009.

"With 46 million people in the U.S. living without health insurance, there is a great need for organizations like ours to do whatever we can to provide people with the attention and treatment they deserve," said Larry King, Jr., president of the Foundation. "My father and I both share the same hope -- that one day there won't be a need for the Foundation. But until that day comes, we will continue to work toward our mission of saving a heart -- a life -- a day."

King, Jr. adds, "Our donors -- corporations and individuals alike -- are the lifeblood of the organization and we are very grateful for their continued support, especially in light of the challenging financial times our country currently faces."

In 2009, the Foundation plans a new fundraising approach that acknowledges the difficult economy, but allows it to continue its mission, which is even more
