Still need to spread more info to the public

Is My Loved One Having A Stroke?  <—— (that’s the link to the video since the one above isn’t playing)

 I feel like this is a really good public education video. 

My lovely uncle had no idea what his symptoms were until it was too late and he has been still unable to regain function to his full body.

I love to share these good educational vids whenever I see them, with as many people as I can with the hope that they will reach someone who ends up needing the info.

    Hello All!

    My wife experienced a pontein stroke on 11/29/18. She was slurring her speech and was dizzy. When I asked if I could call "911", she protested: "I'm fine, just a little tired." This went on for anothe day. Finally, I called 911. She was in the hospital for 3 days receiving all the scans and tests that you are probably familiar with.

    My best adivse: DO NOT ASK THE PATIENT!!!! AT THE FIRST SIGN OF ANY OF THE "F-A-S-T SYMPTOMS", CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY. NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE DOING. STOP AND CALL 911. 

    Here is the link: http://www.stroke.org/understand-stroke/recognizing-stroke/act-fast

    Love and Blessings!
