National Stroke Association's New Messages of Hope Campaign Part of 30th Anniversary Celebration
Everyone Is Invited to Share Hope Inspiring Messages for Stroke Survivors
Centennial, CO—National Stroke Association is kicking off a 12-month celebration of its 30th Anniversary by inviting the public to share Message of Hope for people who are recovering from a stroke. The goal is to assemble a collection of messages that will help stroke survivors persevere on the road to recovery by reinforcing the importance of never giving up. The Messages of Hope will be shared with the public throughout the duration of the 12-month 30th anniversary celebration.
In addition to the Messages of Hope, National Stroke Association has put together an infographic highlighting a collection of important milestones in the world of stroke over the past 30 years. The infographic shows how National Stroke Association has been a part of reducing the incidence and impact of stroke since being founded in 1984.
A stroke is a brain attack that occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery or a blood vessel breaks, interrupting blood flow to an area of the brain. The first step to prevention is identifying if you have any controllable and uncontrollable risk factors and begin to manage them.
Stroke is an emergency. Treatment may be available if a person reaches the hospital in time. Recognizing warning signs can be easy if you remember to think FAST:
