On FEBRUARY 27TH 2011 my life changed forever, this is my story of recovering from a stroke at the age of 21.
1 in 5 people will have a stroke in their lifetime...
I hope this blog helps raise awareness of strokes in younger people or helps another stroke survivor realise it can be OK.
In the UK 150, 000 people will have a stroke every year - 25% of these are under retirement age.
approximately 700 per year are CHILDREN. Strokes do not discriminate against age so remember to act FAST
(Has their face drooped on one side? Can they raise both arms and keep them there? is the speech slurred? time to call an ambulance!!!)
