Stroke: A Brain Attack!
Stroke is the No. 3 cause of death and a leading cause of serious, long-term disability in America. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel bringing blood and oxygen to the brain gets blocked or ruptures, so the brain cells don’t get the oxygen they need.
In a stroke, every second lost is BRAIN LOST! Quick action is essential.
