Barry Manilow Shares How He Got Back in Rhythm
Barry Manilow has partnered with Sanofi US to launch a national, multimedia educational campaign to help raise awareness about atrial fibrillation, a serious heart disease characterized by an irregular heartbeat.
The legendary singer revealed his struggle with the disease on September 13.
"When I first experienced AFib more than 15 years ago, it was really scary -- it felt like a fish flopping around in my chest," said Manilow. "I thought I knew about all the risks, but it turns out I didn't, so I was really lucky I had such great doctors helping me manage it from the start."
The campaign, called Get Back in Rhythm, encourages people to educate themselves about the risks of AFib and to improve the health of those already affected by the disease.
