Most often, a stroke is when a clot gets trapped AND cuts off the flow of blood to parts of your brain.
This causes part of your brain to die. The longer stroke goes without treatment, more of the brain dies.
THE LONGER A STROKE GOES WITHOUT TREATMENT, MORE OF THE BRAIN DIES

Every 40 seconds, someone in America has a stroke.
