American Heart Association Extends Sympathy to Family of Journalist Tim Russert
Date:6/14/2008

DALLAS, June 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Volunteers and staff of the American Heart Association extend their sympathy to the family and friends of national television journalist Tim Russert who died suddenly on Friday.

"Tim Russert was a respected and honored journalist and we are deeply saddened by this loss," said Dan Jones, M.D., president of the American Heart Association. "He was an ardent champion for those issues that touched all of our lives, including healthcare. In fact, he felt passionately that the media should serve as a champion for asking the tough questions on these issues. More importantly, he was passionate about his love for his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time."

Media reports suggest that Russert died suddenly of a heart attack. While many heart attacks can be prevented before they occur, or treated while in progress to halt or lessen the damage, not all can; coronary heart disease is still the number one killer of men, accounting for more than half of all deaths among men. More than 50 percent of all men who die of coronary heart disease have no previous symptoms.
