May is American Stroke Month

Let’s work together to prevent, treat and beat stroke!

During May, American Stroke Month, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association urges all Americans to protect their brain by increasing stroke awareness within their community.  A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Without oxygen-rich blood, brain cells die. As the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., stroke claims a life every 4 minutes. Join the campaign and let’s work together to end stroke!
