Every. Second. Counts. When stroke hits, acting FAST means recognizing and responding at the first sign by calling 9-1-1 and getting to a hospital where lifesaving treatment can be given if a person arrives in time.
Everyone must know the warning signs to save lives.

That’s why the National Stroke Association is asking you to take the Five Faces Pledge right this second. It’s simple—just tell five people you care about exactly what to look for and the importance of acting FAST.

The National Stroke Association is shooting for 2,500 pledges in the next week to help launch National Stroke Awareness Month with more support than ever. Raising awareness now could mean your parent or neighbor gets the critical care they need during a stroke.

Making good on the pledge is easy. They have tools available to share with your network through email, Facebook and Twitter.

Now is our chance to break through the noise and champion this lifesaving cause.

Click here to take the Five Faces Pledge. When you tell five friends about stroke, you’ll be saving lives.

Millions of families are affected by stroke annually, and more than 100,000 people are at risk of dying this year. But if warning signs are recognized and responded to quickly, medical intervention can make for thousands of promising futures.

By teaming up with National Stroke Association, you’ll be aligned with an organization that helps give people the tools to keep our families healthy and happy. There’s no better way to spread the word than through this amazing grassroots movement.

Can we count you in on the Five Faces Pledge?
