Richard was the kind of man who was on top of the world, great business, a happy marriage and his children were thriving at school. He thought he had it all until he found himself laid out on a hospital gurney and rushed into the operating room for double bypass surgery.
Ellen thought herself of herself as healthy and active even at 50. You can imagine her surprise when her doctor told her that her blood pressure put her at risk of a heart attack.
What Richard and Ellen have in common is that they both have heart disease.
The World Health Organization research on the leading causes of death tells us heart disease is the number one cause of death across our planet.
