Stroke affects 700,000 people every year and 160,000 Americans die of stroke each year

Brain cells need oxygen and nutrients to work properly.
This nourishment is provided from blood flowing through vessels in the brain. When one of these vessels becomes clogged by a clot, or breaks open, the blood flow is suddenly stopped and the brain cells die. This is a stroke. Stroke is the sudden stoppage of blood flow to the brain.
