Actress Imelda talks about heart disease and her family

Imelda Staunton is supporting our Help a Heart campaign after the sudden death of her mother three years ago.

In an interview with the Times the actress reveals that both her parents suffered from heart disease.

As a result Imelda says she has regular blood sugar and cholesterol checks and listens carefully to her body.

As part of her work promoting Help a Heart, Imelda recently met two-year-old Cordelia, (pictured) who was born with a heart defect but as a result of life saving surgery is now a happy, healthy toddler.

If you'd like to join Imedla in supporting our life saving research, please go to our campaign website for more information.
