I am 33 - and I just had a stroke


I'm going to begin the fourth anniversary article of In Your Face with a cliche - that speed kills. In most cases, that is true. However, the opposite is true in the case of a stroke - a lesson driven home when I overcame a stroke at the end of August.

And how did I learn this lesson that got me the swift medical care that saved my life? This was a lesson I learned when I interviewed National Stroke Association of Malaysia (Nasam) founder Janet Yeo for an article I wrote to help Nasam raise awareness for Stroke Awareness Day, which falls on Oct 29.
