The Joy Behar Interview (Page 1 of 3)

Today's Caregiver MagazineAn Interview with Joy Behar and her Daughter Eve

Gary Barg:  How has heart disease affected your family?

Joy Behar:  I am the recipient of a gene, I think possibly, because my mother had her first heart attack when she was 50 years old.  An uncle, who is her brother, had a sudden heart attack and died at the age of 58.  Both my grandparents on my mother’s side died of heart attacks.  So, there you have it.  It is not a pretty picture.

Gary Barg:  What do women need to know about the risks of having sudden heart attacks and what should they do if they think they are experiencing one?

Joy Behar:  I think it is sort of logical in a way.  If you feel like you are having a heart attack, you should call 911 immediately.   Bayer has an aspirin awareness campaign going on and has put out a tote which you can carry in your bag.  Tell him about it, Eve.
