VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Star Jones Reveals How She Beat Heart Disease & Survived Open Heart Surgery
Star Jones walked the catwalk on Wednesday for the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women fashion show in February.
The former host of The View has been a national volunteer for the AHA for a decade. Ten years ago, Jones was diagnosed with heart disease and had to have open-heart surgery. Now, she works to bring awareness to heart disease in women.
“With simple lifestyle changes literally 80% of heart disease can be preventable,” said Jones in reference to a study done by the Centers for Disease Control.
