Today, we wanted to make you aware of an important service available to you at St. Mark Catholic Church on Wednesday, September 27th. Many of you may not know that a stroke is a leading cause of death, 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 next 45 minutes, approximately 15 people in the United States will have died due to a stroke. Stroke can be a life threatening and life changing event, and yet according to the National Stroke Association, 80% of strokes are PREVENTABLE.
By signing up for a screening, not only will you be able to take your health into your own hands, but you will also receive a $10 discount of any package of $129 or more. CALL 1-888-653-6450 to schedule an appointment. Join in the fight against vascular disease! A stroke can happen to any one at any age. Up to 80 percent of strokes are preventable.

So protect your health by finding out your risk of having a stroke by participating in the Life Line Screening that will be at St. Mark Catholic Church on Wednesday, September 27th. Through non- invasive, painless ultrasound screenings, we evaluate the carotid arteries for the buildup of fatty plaque which is the leading cause of stroke.

You are encouraged to use your Flexible Spending Account. Did you know that preventive care screenings are typically a reimbursable expense through your FSA plan? Follow the same procedure as if you were filing any other reimbursement item. Life Line Screening accepts flexible spending debit cards right at the screening site!
