Childhood and Infantile Stats

I know this is not my usual type of post, but I wanted to elaborate on my previous poem. The poem I posted was about childhood and infantile stroke. I would like to provide you here with several links which will provide the statistics (I didn’t want to mention myself) for childhood and infantile stroke.

CHASA: http://www.chasa.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/chasa_pediatric_stroke_fact_sheet_2012.pdf

American Stroke Association: http://www.strokeassociation.org/idc/groups/heart-public/@wcm/@adv/documents/downloadable/ucm_302255.pdf

 

In the case of adults, here is a link from the American Stroke Association:

Warning signs of stroke:  http://www.strokeassociation.org/idc/groups/heart-public/@wcm/@hcm/documents/downloadable/ucm_434181.pdf

The month of May is stroke month as well as pediatric stroke month so spread the word and pass these along to everyone you know as stroke can be a killer when the warning symptoms are not recognized or passed off as “nothing”.
