Stroke warning signs educational musical sing-a-long video

Stroke knows no boundaries - every 2 seconds someone in the world has a stroke. Globally someone dies of this leading cause of disability every 5 seconds, ending 6.4 million lives each year. 

On October 29, 2015 marked the 10th annual World Stroke Day, established by the World Stroke Organization (WSO) to underscore the serious nature and high rates of stroke all over our planet, raise awareness of its prevention and treatment and ensure better care and support for survivors. 

The WSO has adopted the acronym F.A.S.T. to make stroke warning signs easy to understand and widely known. This past World Stroke Day, people of all ages and all cultures were invited to sing The F.A.S.T. Song in the musical styling of their choice and share it with friends.

Help raise awareness this year.
