Thought this was interesting and worth passing on. FYI

this comes from the  Harford County Emergency Services Sometimes symptoms o! f a stroke are 
difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster 
The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to 
recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can 
recognize  a stroke by asking three simple questions: 1. Ask the individual to 
smile.2. 
Ask him or her to raise both arms.3. Ask the person to speak a simple
sentence. If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call 9-1-1 
immediatelyand describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. After discovering
that a group of non-medical volunteers could identifyfacial weakness, arm
weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn
the three questions. They presented their conclusions at the American
Stroke
Association's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test
could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain
damage. A cardiologist says if ev! eryone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 
people, you can bet that at least one life will be saved. Tell as many
people as possible about this. It could save their lives!
