Every Second Counts

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Each year, more than 700,000 Americans suffer a stroke. Someone has a stroke every 40 seconds.

When you are having a stroke, a blockage or hemorrhage cuts off oxygen to part of the brain.
Every second that goes by costs thousands of brain cells, which may or may not be recovered.
Survival and degree of recovery depend on how quickly a precise diagnosis can be made and treatment can begin.
