We are bringing an important service to our church on Wednesday, July 24. As many of you may not know, stroke is a leading cause of death today, affecting over 750,000 people each year. Every 45 seconds in America, someone suffers a stroke and every 3 minutes, someone dies from one. This means that during the time I will spend with you today during service, approximately 15 people in the United States will have died due to a stroke.
According to the National Stroke Association, approximately 97% of Americans cannot recognize the signs of stroke and that is why we have decided to bring Life Line Screening, a leading mobile health screening service, into our church to offer life-saving ultrasound screenings.
These tests are important and necessary. Most people don’t realize that these tests are not typically offered during a regular physical, as they are not usually covered by insurance, so for most of you and the people you love, stroke prevention lies in your hands.
Stroke can change your life, but it can also take your life. Please consider taking part in these life-saving screenings. By signing up for this health event, not only will you be able to receive $10 off any package of $149 or more, but Dunbar United Methodist Church will also receive a $10 donation for every member who signs up and attends this Life Line Screening event. The Stroke, Vascular & Heart Rhythm Package includes four screenings: carotid artery, abdominal aortic aneurysm, peripheral arterial disease and atrial fibrillation. To schedule your appointment and to receive this special offer, please sign up only by either calling the dedicated Helping Hands phone number, which is 1-800-324-9458 or by visiting www.helpinghandsforhealth.com. Join in the fight against vascular disease!
