    I remember the first time I witnessed a person having a stroke was on a public bus and it was so scary! I really should be more aware of some of the underlying causes and potential risk factors. Thank you for writing such an informative post!

    It’s so great that you’re bringing awareness to this. I learned about FAST at my doctor’s office. I’ve never witness someone having a stroke but I hope that I am prepared if I do.

    So important to act FAST – face, arms, speech, time. I have experienced this in my very close family, so it’s close to my heart. Thank you for sharing.

      YES! Time is everything. It’s a scary situation but you can make the biggest difference in being prepared! I hope your family member is okay!

    I love that you are bringing attention to this cause! My brother had a stroke, and time is so important when dealing with this type of healthcare emergency. He is better now thankfully, because we acted FAST!

    Thank you for this guide! It’s so easy to feel helpless when I see things like this happening, but now I feel a little better prepared to take action.

    This is such important information, thank you so much for dedicating a post to this. I’m always worried that a loved one or I will not recognize the signs in time to get help. This refresher was perfect timing.

    It was truly a little (actually a LOT) hard for me to read this, with my dad’s stroke having been not long ago. Especially because I was the one he called when it happened, so I heard the initial symptoms and knew without a shadow of a doubt what had happened. It’s a really scary thing to witness, and I hope that it will never ever happen again.

      I was definitely thinking of you when I wrote this. BUT I know without a doubt you made the biggest difference in his outcome and recovery. I’m so glad he had you and you knew what to do. We always hope and pray we never experience things like this but being prepared as you know, can mean life or death. I’m so glad he’s on the mend!

    Oh wow, this is such a good post! This is so important and most people don’t know the signs!
