A stroke is a sudden loss of brain function. It's caused when the blood flow to the brain is interrupted (an ischemic stroke), or there's a rupture of blood vessels in the brain (a hemorrhagic stroke). Both an interruption or a rupture causes brain cells (neurons) in the affected area to die, resulting in varying degrees of impairment in movement, speech, memory, thinking skills, and swallowing.
And strokes are more common than you might think. It's been estimated that someone in Canada has a stroke every 10 minutes.
