FAST - Stroke Awareness

FAST

The Stroke Association is a registered charity formed to raise funds and offer support to stroke victims and their families. They are there every step of the way for stroke survivors helping them to lead as normal life as possible.
Richard explained that a stroke happens when blood supply to the brain is disrupted. He stressed that we should all be aware of the danger of strokes happening and be familiar with how to cope should we encounter someone who we think may have suffered a stroke. He also enlightened us that it is not only the old that can suffer strokes, then can strike at any age even to a child still in the womb.
As Richard proves, having a stroke need not be the end of the world providing one gets a rapid diagnosis and treatment, follow the link for a useful and informative site to visit for further information.
