Heart disease is the number-one killer of men and women in the United States. In fact, more women will die from heart disease than from all forms of cancer combined.
In this month's Health Check report, we'll hear from a 31-year-old woman who had quite a scare. Cathy Schwaar tells us she was exercising when she had chest pains. It turns out her artery was 99 percent blocked.
Cardiologist John Henry treated Cathy. He tell us why he's seeing more patients her age and what we can all do to avoid becoming a victim and improve our heart health.
It's tonight at five on the Channel Six News.
