Taking Up The Cause.

Susan Lucci (Erica, All My Children) and her husband Helmut Huber have partnered with Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., National Stroke Association and StopAfib to improve the awareness of atrial fibrillation, which Helmut has been diagnosed with. In order to help educate people on the condition, the couple is participating in the launch of the new national program Facing AFib.

Atrial fibrillation is one of the most common sustained heart rhythm abnormalities that is associated with up to 15% of all strokes in the U.S. For more information go to Facing AFib.
