The public usually learns when a celebrity is stricken with a life-threatening illness. But what we don't get to share are the intimate details of their private anguish and personal treatment. In TAKING ON HEART DISEASE, more than a dozen celebrities from the arts, sports, politics, and journalism team up with The Larry King Cardiac Foundation and Spotlight Health to speak candidly and movingly about the battles they have waged with heart disease. In the process, they arm us with the knowledge we need to fight--and eventually win--the war against the nation's #1 killer.

Walter Kronkite, Regis Philbin, Joyce Carol Oates, Kate Jackson, Mike Wallace, Peggy Fleming, and Brian Littrell are some of the famous, successful men and women who have agreed to speak so openly in TAKING ON HEART DISEASE.
