    CÁC SIS, PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE. THIS IS WHAT I DID LEARNING FROM A FRIEND, VERY SIMILAR TO THIS STORY; IT DID SAVE MY HUSBAND LIFE ONCE, 5 YRS AGO...KA.

    FYI Friends -

    During a BBQ a friend stumbled and took a little
    fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they
    offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a
    brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned
    up and got her a new plate of food - while she
    appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying
    herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's husband
    called later telling everyone that his wife had been
    taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm, Ingrid passed
    away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ - had
    they known how to identify the signs of a stroke
    perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.

    It only takes a minute to read this-

    Recognizing a Stroke
    A neurologist says that if he can get to a
    stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse
    the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick
    was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed an
    getting to the patient within 3 hours which is
    tough.
    RECOGNIZING A STROKE

    Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps.
    Read and Learn!

    Sometimes symptoms of 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
    (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today) If he
    or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call
    9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the
    dispatcher.

    After discovering that a group of non-medical
    volunteers could identify facial 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 everyone who gets this
    e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at
    least one life will be saved.
