The tragic loss of actor James Gandolfini to sudden cardiac death is a stark reminder of the dangers of heart disease. This silent killer can take a life without warning signs or symptoms. It was sudden cardiac death that claimed the life of Steven S. Cohen and inspired the creation of The Heart Foundation 17 years ago. Here at The Heart Foundation we continue in our mission to educate the public about heart disease, promote early detection, and support revolutionary research in the quest to find more effective ways to treat and prevent this #1 cause of death in the United States. Rest in peace, Mr. Gandolfini. Our thoughts go out to his family and loved ones at this sad time. http://nbcnews.to/11pK2Bk
