Stroke is a “brain attack” cutting off vital blood and oxygen to the brain cells that control everything we do – from speaking, to walking, to breathing. Most strokes occur when arteries are blocked by blood clots or by the gradual build-up of plaque and other fatty deposits. Some strokes can be caused by arteries rupturing when weak spots on the blood vessel wall break.
