'Sharing Miracles' Television Program to Feature Legendary Rapper and Popular Actor Ice-T
Date:7/1/2009

WASHINGTON, July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grammy-winning rapper and award-winning actor Ice-T, known as the "Original Gangster," will be the subject of this month's episode of Sharing Miracles - a 30-minute public affairs television program that tells the compelling and inspirational stories of real patients.

"Finally, the doctor basically told me, 'You can die from this.' That's when I really had to shape up."

Despite losing both of his parents to heart attacks, Ice-T did not know that he was at a high risk for heart disease. In fact, he received his diagnosis only when he went to the doctor for an unrelated problem.

That's why he works hard to spread the word to others about the importance of seeing a doctor: "The truth is that anyone who has a history of
