Women Major Victims of Strokes

Most people are unaware that strokes kill more women than does breast cancer. One out of five women between 55 and 75 will suffer a stroke.

Stroke is the No. 3 cause of death in women and kills more women than men. It leaves 60 percent of its victims disabled.

Because stroke robs the brain of blood and oxygen, it results in the death of brain cells. The functions that these cells control can be impaired or lost, leading to paralysis, loss of speech, loss of memory, diminished reasoning, coma ‑‑ sometimes death.
