Great story on stroke!
Calling 9-1-1 at any sign of stroke is the best response - the faster the treatment, the better one's chances of recovery.
The "Stroke Heroes Act FAST" campaign, from the Mass. Dept. of Public Health, can help people remember the signs of stroke, and recognize one, should it occur.
