Fear of stroke

My parents have both had strokes. My father is now deceased, lived until 97 with Alzheimer's-my mother is 90. Their long lives should encourage me? Not until my sister who is 67 just had a stroke. She has lost the use of her right arm and her speech has been affected. Guess it just shows that age is not that important. But I thank God that she is doing all right.
