STORIES
You may not know this
But you have friends as far south as South Africa and as far north as ICeland with Greece, Canada, Bulgaria and many others in between. The thing that connects us all is the love we have for our Grandheroes and the mission to protect them from the evil clot that causes strokes. I hope their stories inspire you as much as they do us.

Reframing the FASTHEROES 112 educational program during “lock-down”
To date, eight schools and 383 children and their families, in Greece (Thessaloniki, Alexandroupolis & Athens), completed the mission of becoming FAST Heroes. As FAST Heroes they were trained in class to identify stroke symptoms and seek help by dialing 112.

Humble beginnings
Armed with bucket loads full of passion and a singular vision a team consisting of health care professionals and educational experts from the Department of Educational and Social Policy at the University of Macedonia, Greece started working with the Angels Initiative. A team needs a name, and as the mission of this team was to develop the School based educational elements of the FAST Heroes campaign, they called themselves the Super Grand League (SGL).

Los verdaderos héroes, los profesionales sanitarios están listos y esperando para ofrecerte el mejor tratamiento posible.

Por ello, si alguien cercano muestra síntomas de ictus, no te quedes en casa, los hospitales tienen circuitos seguros para proteger a los pacientes de una posible infección.

Llama a una ambulancia al 112, y dale una oportunidad a la vida.

My grandpa Armando says it’s the journey that matters not the destination.
I don’t really know what that means, I just love spending time with him.

It was great visiting you @masha_sheverdina (who guessed our previous destination correctly on Facebook). Next stop we will visit @tolmachego as he was first to guess correctly on Instagram.

If anyone can guess where we took this picture we may come visit you next on our #fastheroesbucketlist world tour.

See if you can guess the place. I’ll give some tips. The first location that I want to visit with my grandma is in a city that is one of four capital cities in this country and is used for half of the year to house the parliament. #grandma #fastheroes #destination ...

Is your Grandfather also a social star?
