43 West, Inc. has been supporting Tedy’s Team for the past five years. Growing up, the parents of Catherine’s best friend Christine both had strokes – her dad when they were in high school and her mom when they were in college. Stroke prevention and awareness is important for all.
Spot the signs of stroke and act FAST:
F FACE: Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
A ARMS: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
S SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
T TIME: If you observe any of these signs, call 9-1-1 immediately.
