​​About Stroke​

A stroke happens when blood supply to the brain is interrupted, leading to brain damage. Our brain is powered by the blood that carries oxygen and nutrients, which it needs to keep our day-to-day bodily functions going. When this blood supply is cut off, brain cells die and the affected brain is unable to control the functions that it is in charge of. 

As different parts of the brain control different functions, the effects of stroke can vary greatly depending on the location of an obstruction within the brain and the amount of brain tissue affected. ​
