Stroke is the number one cause of long‑term disability and the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Yet it continues to be one of the most misunderstood diseases.

Individuals who have experienced a stroke and their families often have questions. Through its Stroke Family Warmline, the American Stroke Association connects stroke survivors and their families to a compassionate and knowledgeable professional who can provide support and helpful information.
