To Rose, who should have been a stroke survivor. No one in her skilled nursing facility called 911 that morning when her stroke started. This booklet is for her, so we can all learn, and through her sad experience, more will live. The proceeds from the sale of this booklet go to the Survive a Stroke Foundation. Rose, we miss you. You deserved better.

Strokes are the #4 cause of death and the
#1 cause of disability in the United States

Today you may be happy, enjoying life, feeling good and having a great day. But, imagine tomorrow waking up and not be able to swallow or talk. No warning. You cannot ask for help. You cannot tell anyone that something is wrong. Your cries for help will not be heard. No one can hear you. You may even have medical personnel around you who do nothing or who actually incorrectly diagnose you and make you worse. You cannot tell them what is wrong. Precious time starts slipping by.
