It is American Stroke Month and National High Blood Pressure Education Month. A stroke occurs every 40 seconds in the United States and hypertension is the single most important risk factor. Please help us raise awareness about stroke warning signs and prevention by visiting http://www.strokeassociation.org. This month we are also celebrating the success of the South Sound Heart Ball – more than $386,000 raised! – and looking forward to our Seattle gala, An Evening with Heart, on May 18. Thank you to all of you who support these events.
