WELCOME TO STROKE MONTH 2014
Time is everything during a stroke. In fact, there is a saying that "time lost is brain lost."The Heart and Stroke Foundation is working tirelessly to help Canadians keep what is precious.
Each year, 50,000 strokes occur in Canada - 5,500 of which happen in Alberta. Stroke can happen at any age, but thanfully we have systems of care in place that enable us to create more survivors.
June is STROKE MONTH, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation needs your help. From June 1st to 22nd, thousands of volunteers across Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut will be knocking on their neighbours' doors, sharing vital health information and raising funds to support our work. Thank you for giving generously during Stroke Month, and helping us create more survivors.
Please give generously this Stroke Month.
