A stroke, also known as a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is damage to the brain tissue due to a disruption in the blood supply to the brain. This "brain attack" can happen to anyone at anytime.
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is suddenly blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. Deprived of oxygen, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain can't function and die within minutes.
