Stroke can't wait. Neither should you. With stroke, every second counts.
Nearly 2 million brain cells die every minute a stroke goes untreated. However, stroke is largely treatable, if you can identity the warning signs of stroke and respond F.A.S.T. (Face Drooping, Arm Weakness, Speech Difficulty, Time to call 911).
Join us this World Stroke Day, to elevate awareness of stroke warning signs and treatment to help save lives from stroke.
