Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in America, claiming over 137,000 lives each year. A major cause of long-term adult disability, these “brain attacks” occur due to blood clots or broken blood vessels that interrupt the vital flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.

Currently, there are seven million stroke survivors over the age of 20 in the United States.
