STROKE IS A MEDICAL EMERGENCY

With stroke, every minute counts. Hesitate and stroke can take away the use of your hand, your ability to talk, your vision and even your memories. But you can change that because the quicker you act, the more of the person you save.

A full 66% of people who have a stroke don’t make it to the hospital to receive time-sensitive treatments. The result: death or disability. But you can help improve that statistic. For yourself and those you care about, recognizing the signs of stroke is the critical first step.

F.A.S.T.

DON’T HESITATE. BE PREPARED FOR STROKE.

KNOW WHAT TO DO

What you do next can make a big difference. Don’t hesitate. Get your Stroke Emergency Checklist to act FAST. And be part of our mission to take power away from stroke.
