May is National Stroke Awareness Month and the importance of this meaningful month could mean the difference between life and death. In the United States, someone has a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies from a stroke every 3 and a half minutes. This staggeringly high number means that, even if you have never suffered from a stroke, someone in your life most likely has.

Although there are certain demographics, psychographics and medical history’s that make a stroke more likely to strike, it can truly happen to anyone at any age. This is why it’s so important to educate everyone on how to spot them early to help manage the effects that could happen afterwards. Read along as we dive into stroke risk factors, symptoms of a stroke and prevention.
