The King of Hearts Helps Others Follow a Healthy Road
Date:11/19/2008

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Today talk show host, Larry King, turns 75. In conjunction with his birthday -- the Larry King Cardiac Foundation, COPE Health Solutions and the LAC+USC Camino de Salud Network celebrated the second annual King of Hearts gala in Los Angeles.

"I was well aware that I had some serious risks. I put off having the life I wanted. I didn't want to have kids ... I was afraid I would die of a heart attack while they were young. That wasn't something I was going to let happen." After receiving clinical confirmation of a cardiac condition at 36, Cliff was referred to an LA County-managed program that helps patients pay for the high costs of cardiac care.

"If I had not found out about the program available through the county, I wouldn't have had my first pacemaker. I have my third pacemaker now, which I got through the King Foundation. I didn't have anywhere near enough insurance or money to pay for it. There are a lot of us wh
