Date:1/21/2008

Marie Osmond invites America's real women to share their stories of heart disease

DALLAS, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For every heart, there is a story -- and the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement wants to hear yours. On Feb. 1, which is National Wear Red Day, survivors, family members, friends and heart health professionals can join Marie Osmond, who lost her mother, father and grandmother to heart disease, at the first-ever National Casting Call event in New York City. Participants have a chance to become the official "Heart of Go Red" and represent the movement in 2008-2009 and possibly appear in a television special on women and heart disease. Go Red For Women's nationwide tour includes casting calls in numerous cities, and stories will be accepted at http://www.GoRedForWomen.org starting Feb. 1.

"I have joined the Go Red For Women movement because I can speak from 'the heart' about my own family's experience with cardiovascular disease," said Marie Osmond, spokesperson for the Go Red For Women movement. "I hope all women will participate with me in making positive lifestyle changes that have significant impact on our heart health. I believe when women share their stories of health choices, struggles and success they not only help each other, they ultimately strengthen their families and communities by living longer, stronger, healthier lives."

"Many women remain unaware that heart disease is their No. 1 killer, even though more than 42 million American women are living with one or more types of cardiovascular disease," said Nieca Goldberg, M.D., Go Red For Women spokesperson, author and medical director of the New York University Women's Heart Program. "According to the most recent data, cardiovascular disease caused approximately one death per minute among females. T
