Each minute counts when treating a stroke. Under the Furthering Access to Stroke Telemedicine (FAST) Act, telestroke technology would be more available to connect patients to care when a stroke specialist is not onsite. That means faster treatment and hopefully a better chance at a full recovery.
Our message is simple. The future is here, Congress act FAST! Will you tell them today?
Over the past few months, thousands of You’re the Cure advocates have urged Congress to embrace telestroke technology and increase access for more Americans by cosponsoring the Furthering Access to Stroke Telemedicine (FAST) Act.
And they have listened. Today, we have 41 cosponsors!
In the next couple months our goal is to get 100 cosponsors. That amount of support is crucial if we want to get it passed by Congress.
