Yes-someone in America has a stroke every 45 seconds. And, as the doctors say, “time is a brain.” Strokes can be debilitating or even life-threatening.
If you develop symptoms of a stroke, it is an absolute emergency and you must think and act FAST:
Face: Facial drop or uneven smile
Arm: Arm numbness or weakness
Speech: Slurred speech or difficulty speaking or understanding
Time: Call 911
