Heart Disease Awareness

Every 33 seconds in the United States, someone dies from cardiovascular disease, accounting for almost half of ALL deaths in the U.S. every year. It is hands down the top killer in the country today. Prevention is, of course, the best weapon we have, but for the victims and their families, it's an uphill battle for the rest of their lives. One of the most serious forms of cardiovascular disease, a heart attack, has brought my father and our family more issues and lifestyle changes than we ever dreamed possible. Awareness and support is the key. Remember those who are battling heart disease. Information provided by Intelihealth.com.

NEW: U.S. News and World Report magazine, week of 3/13/00, featured an informative and exciting article about new treatments for heart disease. Click here for the article.

Heart Disease Awareness

Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine grows in a curve. It is a fairly common disorder occuring more often in women than in men. Bracing and surgery are the two most widely accepted forms of treatment. Idiopathic scoliosis, in which there is no known cause, account for about 80% of all cases. Many physicians believe most idiopathic scoliosis is hereditary, caused by an unknown gene. If the gene is isolated, we may be one step closer to a more effective and less painful treatment. Please support research to isolate the gene that causes idiopathic scoliosis. Information provided by WebMD.
