You can become a stroke hero just by knowing the stroke warning signs and being prepared to use them.

Despite the tremendous toll stroke takes, the vast majority of Americans do not think of stroke as a major health concern. And one in three Americans is unable to identify all the F.A.S.T. stroke warning signs.

We need to make more people aware that stroke threatens millions of American lives, young and old, male and female, from every background. At the same time, stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable.

American Stroke Month is an annual opportunity to get the word out. Each May, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association recognizes American Stroke Month by rallying the nation around the cause because together we can end stroke.

The focus of this year's American Stroke Month effort is making sure there are plenty of stroke heroes ready to save lives — and quality of life — from stroke.

We hope you'll join in by learning the F.A.S.T. signs and sharing them with as many people as possible. Teach your family, friends and coworkers to spot a stroke F.A.S.T. and call 9-1-1 immediately. Remember: the sooner stroke is treated, the better the odds of survival and a full recovery.

 

A growing number of individuals and organizations are helping spread American Stroke Month across the nation and throughout the world. From families to healthcare professionals, corporations, national organizations, professional societies, and communities, each team member plays a critical role in helping create healthier communities.
