The Be-Faster Cookie Challenge Is Easy to Do!

What is Be-Faster all about?

Be-Faster is both an acronym and an action. As an acronym, it represents what you should look for if you think someone might be having a stroke (balance, eyes, face, arms, speech and time) as well as what your next steps should be (emergency response). As an action, it’s how we all need to react if we think someone is exhibiting the signs of a stroke. Because the faster you respond could mean the difference between life, death or permanent physical and cognitive injuries.


of strokes could be avoided


4 minutes

someone dies from a stroke

There are life saving methods to minimize the effects of stroke IF you get to the ER in time!

Knowing the signs of stroke can save someone's life

Once a stroke begins to present itself, BE-FASTER and dial 911 immediately - the more time that is wasted, the more functioning a stroke survivor could lose as a result of the loss of 1,900,000 brain cells a minute. As described below, BE-FASTER represents the majority of the signs of stroke. In short, most people in America do not know the signs and do not respond quick enough to receive early treatment to minimize post stroke challenges.
