Three years ago, award-winning Christian actress Angela Bassett mourned the loss of her mom who had Type 2 diabetes and died of heart disease.

In honor of the woman she calls “my sweetheart,” the “American Horror Story” star has joined the For Your SweetHeart campaign to urge people with diabetes to know their heart disease risk.

“Losing my mom was a wake-up call to start talking about the risk of heart disease with my family members who also have type 2 diabetes, like my uncle Ralph,” said Bassett.

Bassett, along with 11 leading patient and professional organizations, are promoting For Your SweetHeart: Where diabetes and heart disease meet, which is a nationwide movement to raise awareness of the critical link between type 2 diabetes and heart disease, the number one killer of people with type 2 diabetes.
