I bet you didn't know that October 29th was World Stroke Day. It's a timely reminder for us all on what to look out for if you or one of your friends is not feeling well. It could be a stroke.

Just a few months ago, a good friend of mine had a stroke and didn’t know for about 4 days. We’ve all seen the ads on TV and heard about the various symptoms but indeed, this smart independent and active woman didn’t notice she was slurring her words until a friend pointed it out, when they were on the phone. Luckily she listened and did something about it right away.

She's one of the lucky ones. She didn’t lose her mobility though they did take her driver’s licence for several months which she wasn’t happy about. Please take a few minutes to read about the symptoms. You could save a life. Follow this link
