May is National Stroke Awareness Month.
Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States but it doesn't have to be.
Do you know if you are at risk? Would you recognize the symptoms if you or a loved one were having a stroke? Would you know what to do?
The immediate action: Call 9-1-1. Don't wait or assume everything will be alright given time.
