WHEN SOMEONE SUFFERS A STROKE, MINUTES COUNT IN GETTING MEDICAL-ATTENTION.  A RECENT "AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION JOURNAL"-STUDY FOUND THAT MORE THAN A THIRD OF STROKE-PATIENTS DON'T ARRIVE TO THE HOSPITAL BY AMBULANCE--AND DON'T GET THE TREATMENT THAT THEY NEED.  THE "AMERICAN STROKE ASSOCIATION" URGES YOU TO REMEMBER THAT STROKE IS A MEDICAL-EMERGENCY--AND THAT YOU NEED TO CALL "9-1-1"; IT'S THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET TO A HOSPITAL THAT CAN PROVIDE ADVANCED STROKE-CARE.  YOU SHOULD ALSO LEARN TO RECOGNIZE A STROKE.  REMEMBER "FAST":  "F" - FACE-DROOPING; "A" - ARM-WEAKNESS; "S" - SPEECH-DIFFICULTY; AND "T" - TIME TO CALL "9-1-1".  A FREE MOBILE-APP CAN HELP YOU RECOGNIZE A STROKE AND CALL "9-1-1"; LEARN MORE AT "STROKE-ASSOCIATION"-DOT-ORG.
