Rosie O’Donnell & Dr Oz: Heart Health
Rosie O’Donnell and Dr. Oz agree that having a heart attack can most definitely change your perspective. Rosie joked about how surprised she was when Donald Trump tweeted well wishes to her after her heart attack in August. They turned back to a more serious realization for Rosie O’Donnell when she shared a thought that is important to her.
She asked herself what do you have to do to live longer for your family, with the seemingly basic answer being that you have to want to. She goes on to say that there is nothing that makes you want to live more than being as close as she was to death.
Dr. Oz’s Wallet-Friendly Heart Attack Checklist
Because he doesn’t want women to miss any of the heart attack warning signs, Dr. Oz has created a special checklist that can be downloaded from his website. It can be cut and folded to fit perfectly in your wallet and includes important information such as the warning signs and your personal and family history. Download it, fill it out, and carry it with you wherever you go.
Rosie O’Donnell: At Heart Emergency Aspirin Dispenser Review
After her heart attack, Rosie O’Donnell says people sent her many things to help her out, but her favorite is a little aspirin carrier, called the At Heart Emergency Aspirin Dispenser, that attaches to your keys. She demonstrates how simple it is to use; you fill it with two aspirin and at the first sign of a heart attack you simply press out the aspirin and chew it up, then call 911.
Doctor Oz says this is the one simple thing you can do to save a lot of lives. For more information you can go to www.buyatheart.com.

Doctor Oz: Rosie’s Theater Kids Charity
Dr. Oz believes that one of the best things you can in times of stress is something that you enjoy and makes you feel good. For Rosie O’Donnell, that’s her charity Rosie’s Theater Kids. They are celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they go into the poorest schools in Manhattan and offer a 17-week theater workshop for all fifth graders. They get to learn everything related to theater, from acting to lighting, to stage directing.
The kids who excel get to stay with the program and there is now a school where they can attend until they graduate from high school and go onto college. Many of the children have never been to a Broadway show and at the end of the 17-week program they take them to a show. One of the most special moments shared by Rosie was when she took a group of kids to a Broadway show and one of the little boys wasn’t sure where to sit and when Rosie said he could sit in any of the empty seats, he was surprised that they got to sit in the velvet seats of the theater.
Rosie says that that is her mission, to get every kid in Manhattan in to a velvet seat because experiencing a Broadway show is very much a part of living in New York City. She says the change she sees in the kids is remarkable and heartwarming because many of the children come from poverty and this program offers them to learn about theater and performing, but life in general, by giving them homework help and offering counseling when needed.
