STROKE 101

DID YOU KNOW?

A STROKE CUTS OFF VITAL BLOOD FLOW TO THE BRAIN.

IN THE UNITED STATES ... STROKE IS THE THIRD LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH, KILLING 160,000 PEOPLE EACH YEAR, AND THE LEADING CAUSE OF ADULT DISABILITY.

ABOUT 750,000 STROKES WILL OCCUR THIS YEAR; HOWEVER, 500,000 OF THOSE CAN BE PREVENTED.

STROKE CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE AT ANY TIME, REGARDLESS OF RACE, SEX OR AGE.
