Powerful personal story

Not long ago, George D. Wolf, a Penn State-Harrisburg professor emeritus, wrote his experiences for the Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Penn.

His article, "Stroke: It can happen to you," gives the details of how he didn't call for help until the following day of his stroke - too late. He says it plainly:
Much of my misery could have been avoided if I had known more about strokes. Let’s get the word out.
You should read the whole article. Bottom line: Yes, a stroke can happen to anyone. And yes, know stroke signs and get help immediately even if you have just one. You or someone else might not have all the symptoms.
