We've made it simple for you to raise funds quickly & easily for National Stroke Association. Thank you to everyone who helped raise funds during National Stroke Awareness Month in May!
In 2009, nearly 795,000 people whole have a stroke in the United States. Did you know that together we can prevent nearly 80% of all strokes? Did you know that stroke kills twice as many women as breast cancer? Did you know that if you quickly identify stroke symptoms using the F.A.S.T. technique you can save lives and reduce the leading cause of adult disability? Do you know where your stroke center hospital is located? There is so much you can do to combat stroke!
Stroke will impact 4 out 5 American families. It afflicts more than three quarters of a million Americans each year. Stroke is a disease where only 4% of patients are appropriately treated. Together we can drastically increase that number. What a difference you can make for yourself, your loved ones and your community.
