Barry Manilow, spokesperson for “Get Back In Rhythm”
World-famous musician and singer Barry Manilow is one of the more than 2.5 million Americans living with Atrial fibrillation (AF, or AFib), a disease that causes your heart to race and beat out of rhythm, and make it hard to pump blood efficiently to your body.
Becoming the spokesperson for “Get Back In Rhythm”, will help raise awareness about atrial fibrillation (AFib).AFib is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow to your body. Although AF itself usually isn't life-threatening, it is a serious medical condition. While some people with AFib may feel no symptoms, others may feel palpitations, shortness of breath, weakness, and anxiety. People often aren’t aware of all the serious consequences of this disease, including permanent heart damage, heart attack, heart failure, stroke and death.
