Stroke Awareness Month is April each year, yet we promote it all year round. We promote FAST, Stroke Prevention and Stroke Recovery.
There will soon be 10,000 Strokes a year in New Zealand, and 1 in 4 people will have a stroke in their lifetime.
The third biggest cause of death and the leading cause of disability in older people.
Stroke can occur at any age. Being aware of risks and managing them is the best way to prevent a stroke.
We are a charity that provide free services to Stroke Survivors and we promote health and stroke prevention messages.
