May is National Stroke Awareness Month

This month is national stroke awareness month.

Stroke is a major cause of serious, long-term disabilities. It ranks as the third-highest cause of death in the United States behind heart disease and cancers.

To help raise awareness for strokes and women’s health, the Franciscan Alliance Northern Indiana Region’s Spirit of Women program put on a presentation called “Don’t Have a Stroke” in Chesterton on Thursday, and the presentation will also occur in both Dyer and Crown Point on the 23rd. The event will teach women of their risk factors for stroke and changes they can make to prevent it.

If you have become disabled after having a stroke, contact the Indiana long-term disability lawyers from the Hankey Law Office, at (800) 520-3633.
