Stanford Stroke Experts Advance Recognition of Stroke in Young People

Ryan Kennedy, 29, was airlifted to Stanford so experts here could treat his stroke. The condition is unusual in people his age. Not until doctors showed him a scan of his brain did Kennedy believe what was happening to him. When his first symptoms appeared—sudden dizziness, one-sided facial droop, and inability to speak clearly—he didn’t know what to think. Quick treatment saves brain function after a stroke—Kennedy is back to work and the active life he had before the stroke.
