How We Help
Awareness is critical! What if you could help save your life or someone else’s by knowing the signs of stroke? Once a stroke begins to present itself,
Act FAST and dial 911 immediately - the more time that is wasted, the more functioning you could lose as a result – up to 1,900,000 brain cells a minute
or worse - death. Act FAST when stroke strikes. Be aware of the signs of a stroke:
Can you smile? Does one side of the face droop?
Can you raise both arms – or is one weak?
Is speech slurred?
Call 911 if you have any one of these signs immediately! Don’t wait.
