Rosie O’Donnell Proves Laughter is Good for the Heart with "A Heartfelt Stand Up" Airing on on HBO Valentine's Day: View Trailer

Many times it is because the disease or situation personally touched them, other times it is just because it is any interest of theirs, other times it is because someone simply asked them. It doesn't matter what the reason what matters is the cause.

This weekend on HBO Rosie O'Donnell will present a special on heart disease called  "Rosie O'Donnell, A Heartfelt Stand Up".

February is heart awareness month. Heart attacks are mostly associated with men, yet heart disease is the number one killer of women. One in three women die of heart disease and stroke. I know this because my mother died of a heart problem too.

On THE VIEW, Rosie talked about the HBO show. She said that "the first half hour will make you laugh, it's about me taking care of my kids", and then the next half hour you'll start thinking, "oh, she almost died." Sources say the last twenty minutes are the serious part.
