The Larry King Cardiac Foundation Achieves Record Life-Saving Pace With Help From New Friends and Partners

Jackson Health Systems, 'party philanthropy' and a caring young girl aid the cause

WASHINGTON, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Larry King Cardiac Foundation (LKCF), founded by internationally acclaimed talk show host Larry King, is exceeding its goal to Save a Heart a Day. Since January 1, 2009, 180 individuals worldwide have received life saving cardiac treatment from the Foundation and partner facilities.

During these difficult economic times, these calls are gifts of hope.

I take calls from all over the world for a living, but none are more important than the ones I make to let someone know there is hope and immediate treatment for them," said Larry King. "Undoubtedly, times are tough, and we still need support to keep moving full steam ahead."

Helping the Foundation in its efforts is 12-year-old Brooke from Florida, who recently launched an effort to raise money as a tribute to her grandmother who died from heart disease. Through sales of the Foundation's signature red bracelet, lemonade stand profits, and her request for donations in lieu of gifts for her upcoming party, Brooke has raised enough money to fund the surgery of a patient in South Florida at Jackson Health Systems, a new hospital partner.

At Jackson Memorial in Miami, Brooke will meet the patient she has helped save as LKCF announces its 13th hospital partner, Jackson Health System, an inter
