Take Steps to Learn About Stroke During Stroke Month

by Pamela M. on Thursday, May 23, 2013

Stroke is largely preventable. In fact, it is the No. 1 preventable cause of disability. The American Stroke Association is here to empower you and your loved ones to prevent stroke through knowledge, action and hope.

Stroke is treatable. The American Stroke Association is here to help you to recognize the warning signs, so you can respond fast in a stroke emergency. When you recognize a stroke and act fast by calling 9-1-1, you have a greater chance of survival and recovery. Remember the acronym F.A.S.T. to help you recognize symptoms and what to do:  F – Face weakness, A – Arm weakness. S –Speech difficulties, T - Time to call 9-1-1.

Stroke is beatable. Stroke survivors and their families are not alone in the recovery. The American Stroke Association is here to help with resources to help. Visit for more information.
