June is Stroke Awareness Month. Learn the signs of stroke.
“You are never too young or too old to ignore the warning signs of stroke. My hand was goofy, it wouldn’t work for me and my speech was a little off. I saw those F.A.S.T. advertisements but thought I couldn’t be having a stroke as I was too young. Now I know – if you have even one of those signs – you need to get it looked after, IMMEDIATELY.”
– Toronto Stroke Networks Patient Advisor
Anyone with stroke symptoms should call 9-1-1 right away. Stroke is a medical emergency. Do not drive to the hospital. An ambulance will get you to the best hospital for stroke care.
