Stroke has dropped to No. 5 as a leading cause of death! The statistics cover deaths reported in 2013.

Heart disease is still the No. 1 cause of death.  Cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, unintentional injuries and stroke follow.

Despite the positive statistic, people are having more strokes and risk factors for stroke remain too high.

Speed of treatment is crucial to save lives and prevent disability from stroke.
