On average, in the U.S., someone has a stroke every 40 seconds.
Stroke is a leading cause of disability and is among the top five causes of mortality in our community. We believe that the impact of stroke can be significantly decreased if we work in education, training and research to prevent this disease. Cure 4 Stroke Foundation was created in 2013 with the sole purpose of developing training, research, and educational programs for healthcare providers and the community. Based in Chicago, Illinois, Cure 4 Stroke is sustained through fund raisers, donations, research grants and training courses.
Stroke is the number 5 cause of death in the U.S. —
and a leading cause of serious long-term disability.
