Jacklyn Zeman Asks Viewers to Show the Power of Love this February
DALLAS- Did you know that one out of two women will eventually die from heart disease or stroke, compared to 1 in 29 who will die of breast cancer? This February (American Heart Month), you can help stop heart disease, the No. 1 killer of women, through the American Heart Association's Power of Love campaign.
By purchasing select beauty products and gift items from Power of Love campaign supporters, you can help raise much-needed funds for heart disease and stroke research and education. The Power of Love supporters are donating part of their February sales proceeds from select products to the American Heart Association.
"I was shocked to learn that a woman's greatest health risk is heart disease and stroke. The keys to saving women's lives are research and education," says actress Jacklyn Zeman, who plays the role of Bobbie Spencer on the popular ABC daytime drama "General Hospital."
Zeman, a longtime supporter of the American Heart Association and a campaign spokesperson, adds, "By simply purchasing beauty products and gift items for Valentine's Day from Power of Love supporters you can help raise more than $1 million to fund lifesaving research. Money will also be used to educate women and their families about the risks of cardiovascular diseases and the lifestyle changes needed to prevent future health problems."
For American Heart Month this February, use the Power of Love to help save lives. Log on to a special American Heart Association Power of Love Web site - americanheart.org/Love - to find out where you can take a CPR course in your community and what beauty products and gift items you can purchase to support the American Heart Association. The Power of Love Web site also includes:

This February the Power of Love is also the power to help save lives from heart disease-- the No. 1 killer of both women and men.
Thanks in part to American Heart Association-funded research, important discoveries such as CPR, life-extending drugs, pacemakers, bypass surgery and surgical techniques to repair heart defects have been made. Countless people are alive today to enjoy the love of family and friends because of these lifesaving advances. With the help of the Power of Love campaign even more lives may be saved in the future.
The Power of Love is sponsored by OPI Products, Inc., Pantene, Walgreens, Home Interiors and Gifts, Swarovski Crystal, Nestlé® Carnation® Coffee-mate® and MasterCard International.
