WHAT IF LEARNING AND SHARING A SONG COULD SAVE A LIFE? This World Stroke Day, we invite people of all ages and cultures to learn the warning signs of stroke by learning the F.A.S.T. Song and sharing it with friends and loved ones. Sing along with us to our R&B, Pop, Latin, or Gospel tracks, or create your own version of the F.A.S.T. song using our F.A.S.T lyrics.

If someone has a stroke near you,
The FAST song tells you what to do.


The letter "F," it stands for face,
If one half droops, no time to waste.

The letter "A" means an arm that's weak,
The letter "S" means it's hard to speak.

The letter "T" means it's time for 9-1-1,
Call right away so help will come.

Learn the song to show you care
And help end stroke each time you share.

Face – Arm – Speech – Time – FAST
Face – Arm – Speech – Time – FAST

Heart disease and stroke are ranked
as the No. 2 cause of death in many
of the Latin American countries.

Yet, many consumers do not think of stroke as a major health concern and taking action to learn about how to prevent and treat it. The Latin America region has committed to supporting the WHO’s global goal of reducing premature mortality of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by 25% by 2025.
