ABSTRACT
An interview with celebrity Phylicia Rashad, spokeswoman for the Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Coalition, is presented. When asked what motivates her to draw the cause, she believes that her father might have PAD at the time of his death, however, it was not diagnosed. She expresses that the campaign could make a difference for people considering that the test is very simple. She believes that life is created for oneself and others, thus, every person has to do something good.
