Recognize World Stroke Day - Because You Care!

Worldwide, one in six people will have a stroke in their lifetime and stroke claims a life every six seconds.

On World Stroke Day, October 29, 2013, we invite you to stand in solidarity with us and learn F.A.S.T. to remember the stroke warning signs. Let’s come together on World Stroke Day and beyond to raise awareness that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable.
