FAST Signs of a Stroke

One of the most unnerving incidents you can witness is someone going through a stroke. Strokes impact people in many different ways, and while a serious one can be easy to spot, sometimes a smaller stroke can be harder to understand. This can lead to an issue where you don’t know if it’s a stroke or something else, meaning you may wait to call 911 for an ambulance. Unfortunately, every delay can lead to consequences including, long-term memory loss, paralysis, speech problems, changes in behavior, or death. So the reason many people say witnessing a stroke is so scary, is that it can take time to realize someone is having a stroke, and that lost time could have had a significant impact on the sufferer.

Disney’s Very Merry Christmas Party
