In Honor of American Heart Month, Joy Behar & Daughter Eve Call on Women to Take the ProHeart Pledge on Facebook
Date:2/1/2012

eating heart-healthy, staying active, and maintaining the commitment to living a ProHeart lifestyle. The I am ProHeart Facebook page provides an online community where those affected by heart disease, and their loved ones, have a ready source of reliable information and can share and learn from others' experiences, so they never have to feel alone.

"Women have such busy lifestyles as mothers, caregivers, sisters, or daughters, and often find it challenging to commit to living a lifestyle that puts their health first," said Annabelle Volgman, M.D., FACC, and Medical Director, Rush Heart Center for Women. "But, each year, one in three American women who dies, dies from heart disease.[ii] One of the most important ways to be ProHeart is to ask your doctor about your risks for heart disease, and to be prepared. Being prepared means knowing to call 911 if you suspect a heart attack and having aspirin on hand, just in case. Taking aspirin during a heart attack – as directed by a doctor – can help reduce damage to the heart and prevent death. American Heart Month is the perfect time to start taking simple steps to live a heart-healthy lifestyle."

"Since heart disease runs in our family, I've always encouraged my mom to talk to her doctor about her risks and to live a heart-healthy lifestyle," said Eve. "Taking the ProHeart Pledge during Heart Month is a great first step in living a heart-healthy life. My mom and I hope that this pledge inspires women to start living ProHeart and recommit to fighting heart disease."

To take the ProHeart Pledge, visit the I am ProHeart Facebook page (www.facebook.com/iamproheart).
