May is Stroke Awareness Month, the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association's annual campaign to increase awareness that a stroke is something largely preventable if you know and act upon the risks and warning signs. Stroke is the number four cause of death and leading cause of disability in the U.S. Many Americans don't think of stroke as a major health concern, even though every forty seconds someone in America has a stroke.
