We work very hard here at the Stroke Foundation to raise awareness of the signs of stroke and the importance of calling 000 (triple zero) immediately if you think you, or someone you are with, is having a stroke.
Our FAST campaign uses the acronym FAST to help people remember and recognise key signs of stroke. So when we hear stories of how the FAST campaign has helped everyday Australians like Kim Durose, we are inspired to know that the work we are doing is making a difference.
The best way to educate even more people - and save more lives - is to let everyone know about these personal stories.
So we would like to know your story. Has knowing the signs of stroke or the FAST test saved your life or the life of someone you know? Were you able to think F.A.S.T. and act FAST? Email Strokeweek@strokefoundation.com.au to tell us your story of recognising the signs of stroke.
