It’s National Stroke Week, which aims to raise awareness of stroke and the early warning signs, using the FAST test (Face, Arms, Speech and Time to act FAST!).
See the new FAST interactive website at www.signsofstroke.com.au and ‘ThinkFAST’ iPhone Application at http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/think-fast/id390353087?mt=8
to ensure that have the FAST message wherever you step.
Approximately 60,000 people in Australia have a stroke every year. That’s an individual stroking every 10 minutes. I am one of the lucky ones who survived Australia’s second biggest killer, many aren’t so fortunate.
I invite each of you to ‘step up’ and check out this new material and spread the FAST message amongst your personal & professional networks.
