"Act FAST" Challenge58

Wherever we are, we know how to save a life.

There is a moustache as a symbol of a fight against a prostate cancer, there is a yellow flower drawing attention to danger of a breast cancer and there is a red ribbon warning against HIV virus. We have also created appropriate symbol for a stroke – a yellow emoticon with a dropped mouth side.

We have started this challenge on the occasion of a World Stroke Day in 2015. The title „Act FAST“ urges for fast reaction and calling an ambulance if one of the stroke symptoms (more about stroke symptoms can be found here) noticed. Time is very crucial – the earlier a patient is brought to the hospital, the higher the chance for a good and fast recovery is. The symbol for stroke on balloons has many times crossed borders of the Czech Republic and it has been photographed for example in Israel, Japan, Sweden, Italy or New York. JOIN THE CHALLENGE AS WELL!

 

Look where the balloon has already traveled!
