Do you know about Stroke?

A stroke is a medical emergency known as "brain attack" which can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die.

Stroke can lead to death or permanent disability.

There are opportunities to treat but treatments need to be started in the first few hours after the signs of a stroke begin such as:

-Face drooping

-Arm /leg weakness

-Speech difficulty
