I distinctly remember going to the library with my dad one evening. He and my mom were interested in getting a vehicle and he wanted to do all the research he could to inform his decision. He pulled out consumer reports magazines and an actual Kelly Blue Book.

Did You Know May is Stroke Month?
What do you do when you are sitting around the table at dinner, or standing at the kitchen counter and the person across from you suddenly starts slurring their words or does not make sense? What if that person’s face suddenly droops on one side? Can you recognize the signs that someone is having a stroke? It’s as easy as remembering the word FAST.

Advocate Spotlight: Kathy McCormick
When I woke up at 6:30 AM on October 22, 2013 I knew something was terribly wrong. I tried to get out of bed and found it difficult to walk. I called for my husband, who had just returned from the gym, he found me slumped on the bed and with the slurred voice I said, "I think I'm having a stroke." I convinced him to not call for an ambulance, - I didn't want the fanfare- instead, I asked him to drive me to the hospital. Not a smart move!
