What is Stroke? A stroke is a "brain attack." It can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when an artery to the brain is either blocked or it bursts. As a result, part of the brain does not get the blood that it needs, so it starts to die. When brain cells die, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control are lost.
