KMRY Radio has teamed up with the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association because We ♥ our listeners!
- Did you know there are 2500 heart attacks and 2100 strokes nationwide each day?
- By the end of that day, half will not survive.
The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association want to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% by the year 2020. That means saving 863 lives each day! We’ll share information and life-saving messages throughout the next year to help reach these goals.
Eighty percent of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases are preventable by making healthy choices like eating right, exercising and not smoking. We’ll help!
Here’s our message for the month of May:
Did you know stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in the US and someone suffers a stroke every forty seconds? However, knowing the “F.A.S.T” signs of a stroke can save a life! If you see someone experiencing FACE DROOPING, ARM WEAKNESS or SPEECH DIFFICULTY, it’s time to call 911. Time lost is brain lost, and calling 911 is the fastest proven way to get care for a stroke patient. For more information, visit the American Stroke Association’s website at www.strokeassociation.org
