This weekend is Mother's Day, a day to celebrate Mothers all across the country. Queen Latifah has a very special relationship with her mother.
You see, Latifah's mom Rita Owens began experiencing symptoms of heart failure 10 years ago. Latifah has worked with doctors and specialists for years - and finally she has her mom's condition under control.
Rita uses a combination of medicine, diet and exercise to stay healthy.
Latifah has taken her quest to educate people about heart problems national. She has partnered with the American Heart Association’s Rise Above Heart Failure movement to spread the word about heart failure and to help others understand the signs and symptoms of the condition, and how to manage it. Rise Above Heart Failure is nationally supported by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation and was created in collaboration with experts across the heart failure community.
