DON’T GO BREAKIN’ MY HEART:
PARADE OF AMBULANCES DELIVERS GIANT HEART TO BODIES… THE EXHIBITION AT LUXOR HOTEL AND CASINO TO KICK OFF AMERICAN HEART MONTH
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1
With the help of MedicWest, the 600-pound heart will be escorted down The Strip by four ambulances today, Friday, Feb. 1, and delivered to the lobby of Luxor where it will stay on display throughout the month. The 13-foot-long, 7-foot-wide and 12-foot-high heart will be met by Amanda Daniels, spokesperson for the American Heart Association, and more than 100 students from Cheyenne High School. Daniels was diagnosed with heart disease as a teen and will share her personal testimony with the group before joining them on their tour of the Exhibition. In the hopes of catching any heart-related health issues early, MedicWest is providing complimentary Blood Pressure and Blood Glucose screenings to all exhibition guests from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States – it knows no boundaries and it doesn't discriminate,” said Daniels. “I was diagnosed with heart disease during my senior year of high school and the fear of dropping dead or undergoing a heart transplant consumed every part of me. Rather than giving up and succumbing to my disease, I fought! Today, despite being told it may never be the case, I am a mother of two and a survivor living with heart disease.”
