We have a dear friend who suffered a stroke and it will only take a minute for you to read this...
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can reverse the effects of a stroke ...totally. he said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours!
Can you recognize stroke symptoms?
-Ask the person to SMILE.
-Ask the person to TALK.
-Ask the person to Raise Both Arms.
-Ask the person to stick out their Tongue.
If the tongue is crooked or they trouble with any of the above tasks, call 9-1-1 and describe the symptons.
By passing this on, I hope that we can help others , like our dear friend.
