F.A.S.T., or "Face, Arms, Speech and Time." This acronym could save a life during a stroke. But, according to the American Stroke Association, fewer than one in ten people know what it stands for.

As World Stroke Day approaches this Thursday, the American Stroke Association is teaching the public early warning signs and what to do if one occurs. This through a catchy tune called the F.A.S.T. song. A tune that stroke survivors, who shared their stories at the Vestal library Tuesday afternoon, understand the importance of.

Lyrics include "The letter "F," it stands for face, if one half droops, no time to waste." For the entire song and more information, visit StrokeAssociation.org/WorldStrokeDay.
