If anyone has experience with heart conditions, it’s former Vice President Dick Cheney. Having suffered his first heart attack at the age of 37 in 1978, his life has been plagued by heart disease. But thanks to advancements in the treatment of cardiac conditions, he’s survived five heart attacks and eventually had a heart transplant.
In his recently released book, “Heart: An American Medical Odyssey,” he tells how his doctors had to adjust his defibrillator when he was vice president. They were worried that terrorists might hack it.
With all that background, it should come as no surprise that Cheney will be the keynote speaker at the Go Red for Women Luncheon on Friday, February 7, at the Hilton Anatole.
But don’t go thinking that this is a ladies-only luncheon. No, siree. Co-Chairs Capera Ryan and Barbara Smith are encouraging gents to join the American Heart Association fundraiser.
Don’t let your political leanings hold you back from attending this luncheon. Heart disease cuts across all political lines.
