Richard Bennet from Woodland Hills, participated in a Life Line Screening event in March of 2008 and learned he had contracted an abdominal aortic aneurysm. “I feel as though Life Line Screening saved my life,” he wrote. “I can’t thank you enough!”
Four key points every person needs to know:
• Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability.
• 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke.
• Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke.
• Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient.
Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms and hardening of the arteries in the legs – a strong predictor of heart disease. Also offered at the event is a bone density screening, appropriate for both men and women, to assess osteoporosis risk.
Packages start at $149; pre-registration is required. All five screenings take 60 to 90 minutes to complete. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 877-237-1287 or visit www.lifelinescreening.com.
