Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefAn Interview with Joy Behar

Joy Behar is an American comedian, writer, actress, and a co-host of the talk show, The View. In the fall of 2009, Behar began hosting her own celebrity news and commentary program, The Joy Behar Show, on CNN's sister network HLN. For Joy, heart disease is a family affair. Despite having lost both parents to heart disease, Joy’s mother Rose was not prepared when a sudden heart attack struck in her fifties. Now, Joy and her daughter Eve (a talented ceramic artist) are challenging women who have or are at risk for heart disease to be prepared, and better their odds of surviving should a heart attack strike without warning. And they caution women, “Don’t stop there.” Embrace this second chance at life by living a more heart-healthy lifestyle.

Joy graced the cover of Today’s Caregiver last January and recently she  joined Gary Barg  for a follow-up interview to talk more about caregiving and women’s heart health.

Gary Barg:  Joy, it's a real pleasure to talk with you again and I loved reading Straight Talk, A Woman's Guide to Heart Health.  It's filled with great information from you, Eve, and a slew of medical professionals. I was really taken with videotaped interviews with survivors.  What do you think women can learn from these incredible survivor stories?

Joy Behar:  Whenever somebody survives a horrible incident like a heart attack or cancer or a tragedy, I was thinking, how do you get through something like that?  What you learn is the old adage, “If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger.” So you learn that you have to deal with your illness.  You can't ignore it...continued

Take care
