We're raising funds & awareness to prevent, treat & beat stroke!
This National Stroke Week (7 – 13 August 2023) we are fighting stroke together!
Every minute counts. Learning the F.A.S.T signs of stroke Face, Arms, Speech, Time can save lives.
I am fundraising for Stroke Foundation to fight stroke and I'll be sharing the F.A.S.T. (Face. Arms. Speech. Time) signs of stroke.
Using the F.A.S.T. test involves asking these simple questions:
- Face Check their face. Has their mouth drooped?
- Arms Can they lift both arms?
- Speech Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?
- Time is critical. If you see any of these signs call triple zero (000) immediately.
If you or someone you know experiences the signs of stroke, no matter how long they last, call triple zero (000) immediately.
With our help, Stroke Foundation can continue raising awareness of the F.A.S.T message and work to help prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.
Together we can change the state of stroke in Australia for generations to come.
The Early Stroke Discharge Team at Northern Health are aiming to complete at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise most (ideally every) day of the week for the month of August to raise funds.
