STROKE AWARENESS AND OTHER IMPORTANT
LINKS.


Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the United States and the
3rd  leading cause of death.  Yet, according to the National Stroke
Association website,
“…up to 80 percent of all strokes may be preventable…”

Over  750,000 Americans experience a stroke every  year.  A Stroke is a
medical emergency. Know these warning signs of stroke and teach them to
others. Every second counts:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially
    on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

Call 911 immediately if you experience these symptoms!

The Thief

He kidnapped my Mother
He took her away
It happened so quickly
That one summer day

No time to scream
Or even to cry
No time for hugs
Or kisses goodbye

Into our life
He crept like a Thief
He’s stolen my Mother
And left only grief

I can’t find my Mother
She’s not anywhere
But there’s an old woman
Who sits in that chair

She’s not my Mom
The one I once knew
She’s never happy
Or funny – just blue

The Thief took no jewels
No silver or cash
He just stole my Mother
And left in a dash

He stole her fine mind
And her memory book too
He left just a shell
Of the Mom I once knew

The Thief left m
y Mother
physically broke
The Thief has a name
His name is
A STROKE!
