(KFVS) – The American Heart Association has released a short film to help women fight heart disease.
The first-ever “Go Red for Women” short film “Just a Little Heart Attack” stars Emmy nominated actress Elizabeth Banks.
The film is inspired by real-life stories of women who have been affected by the disease.
“As women, we take care of everyone in our lives: our husbands, our kids, our mothers, our fathers but we never look at ourselves,” said Banks. “So, this little film is about a super mom who takes care of everyone except herself and learns the lesson that she better look at herself, as well.”
Officials say one in three women suffers from heart disease, yet only one in five believes she is personally at risk.
