Stroke is the number five cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the U.S.
The American Stroke Association aims to educate all Americans that stroke is largely preventable, treatable and beatable.
In the U.S., 800,000 people have a stroke each year, one every 40 seconds. Yet, 80% of strokes are preventable, many Americans cannot identify the stroke warning signs, and most stroke survivors and family caregivers do not know where to go for stroke recovery information. With your help, we can close the gap in stroke awareness and help save lives.
