Missouri mum thanks Elizabeth Banks for life-saving message

From WENN.com

Christie Thompson watched the short film Just a Little Heart Attack the actress made for the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement - and the lessons she learned helped her when she suffered a cardiac arrest.

The Missouri woman says, ""When I first viewed the film Just a Little Heart Attack, I laughed out loud. As a single mum raising two kids, I remember those crazy mornings trying to get everyone out the door on time and caring for everyone but myself.

""Had the video not made me laugh, I don't think I would have retained the message about not ignoring heart attack symptoms, because I had no risk factors for heart disease.

""Because of Elizabeth Banks' dedication to this wonderful film, I am alive today! I am extremely grateful for her commitment to making this short film funny and memorable so that women like me are able to get the message.""
