Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the US and unfortunately the older you become the higher your risk. Heart Disease can lead to a life threatening heart attack so it’s important to know the signs to watch for such as: Chest pain or discomfort including: Pain in the arms, back, neck, jaw or upper stomach.

If you experience these symptoms you should call 911 immediately.
