Just a Little Heart Attack (video)

More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer put together. Unfortunately, heart disease is often silent, hidden, and misunderstood. Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the U.S.

To shed some light on the subject, and with a bit of humor, Elizabeth Banks directs and stars in the short film, Just a Little Heart Attack.

“While the film is funny, having a heart attack is not something to be laughed at,” said Banks in a press release. “However, I’m using humor to help uncover the truth about heart disease, to get people interested in learning more about their hearts – and our movement.”

This three-minute film hopes to educate women about the reality of heart disease and encourages them to put their health first. After you view it, please share it.
