FORWARD THE FACTS IN THE FIGHT FOR STROKE PREVENTION
For some, the word “stroke” is scary, simply because they fear the unknown. Whether that’s you, or you know someone like that, arm yourself with these facts about stroke, and forward them to the people you care about.
STROKE PREVENTION STARTS WITH KNOWING THE FACTS
In the U.S. someone has some kind of stroke every 40 seconds. That’s about 795,000 strokes each year, and many of those happen to people who’ve already had one. Sadly, many people don’t realize that strokes are largely preventable and treatable, and many others might not even know what a stroke is.
Getting and sharing the facts on stroke can be a great way to help bring the power of stroke prevention to the people you care about.

WHY PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH
If you take prescription medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, they may not be enough to protect your heart. Talk to your doctor about whether these medications are enough for you and whether adding an aspirin regimen can help further reduce the risk of another heart attack or clot-related (ischemic) stroke.
Aspirin is not appropriate for everyone, so be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regime.
