Star Jones Lobby's For The American Heart Association

Star Jones on Capitol Hill

Star Jones posed for photographers in Washington D.C. on Tuesday where she was busy lobbying on behalf of the American Heart Association.

After having open heart surgery herself a little over a year ago, her mission to raise funds to fight cardiovascular disease became personal.

The television personality even brought the causes to the limelight when she raised a record-breaking $170,000 for AHA on Celebrity Apprentice in the first episode!

Dang! Now that's impressive!

On top of experiencing the potentially deadly disease herself, she has done her research, explaining:

"I don't know how many people really do understand the fact that 82 million people in the United States suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease and it's the number one killer of all Americans, it's the number one killer of women, it's the number one killer of African Americans."

So scary! We're glad you're dedicating your time to raise awareness and hopefully save some lives.

Keep up the good work, Star!
