May is National Stroke Awareness Month
Learn from the experience of a grateful patient who received life-saving treatment from the Stroke Center at Emanate Health Queen of the Valley Hospital.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S. and a leading cause of adult disability and happens when the brain's blood supply is stopped by a burst blood vessel or a blood clot. During a stroke, brain cells can die quickly. Early treatment can help minimize this damage, preventing long-term disability and saving lives.
