    I have been using life screening for several years until this past year. Due to lack of income and not having insurance while at home helping my father out (he is 91) – funds were not available this year to do my yearly testing.

  14. Gloria Benavides - May 15, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    I would like a free stroke screening test because I have
    always said I am going to do it and don’t stop to do it. We
    have had heart attack problems in our family and I don’t
    want this to happen to me.

  15. Melanie Hunt - May 15, 2014 at 2:03 pm

  39. linda perez - May 15, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    I know of so many people we have lost to stroke or have become handicaped because of a stroke. I am very thankful for the chance to win a screening. My family has a history of stroke so I try to take care of myself and my family. My father is at chance because he has had blood clots in the past and is now on warfarin. I watch him and pray all will be well. These screening are wonderful but usually are to expensive. Thank you for this chance.

    and he is very disabled.

  49. Jenny - May 15, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Thank you so much for the opportunity! I haven’t been able to afford any additional tests like this — ironically because I’ve been taking care of my mom for the past couple of years who had strokes herself.

  50. Julie Young - May 15, 2014 at 3:43 pm

  53. Zintka O. Bilyeu (Polly) - May 15, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    Why worry and wonder about your health? Be proactive and have a Life Line Screening

  54. Linda Bailey - May 15, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    I would like a free stroke screening test because I just had caroid artery surgery (a blockage caught by Lifeline Screening) a few months ago. I turned 70 a week ago…so really a high risk with high blood pressure, COPD, obesity, high cholesteral and lack of exercise. I am scheduled for weight doctor consult next week.
    Lifeline Screening saved my life once with the artery ultrasound.

    I recently did a free cholesterol screening and I do have a family history of strokes and diabetes. I was suprised to find out that i had borderline high cholesterol. I managed to take action and get my cholesterol down over 40 points due to the free screening. I know these screenings can save lives.

  80. Sandra Happoldt - May 15, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    Although I think I am reasonably healthy, strokes run in my family, as both of my mother’s parents died of strokes.

  83. Lynn Golden - May 15, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    My last screening emphasized my plaque buildup could eventually be a health problem. It made me more aware of the urgency to become healthier with serious diet & exercise. A longer life expectancy is always welcomed.

  84. Mark Davis - May 15, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Please sign me up for a free Stroke Screening during your awareness month.

  88. Gladys Hizer - May 15, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    I am caregiver for a very sick spouse who has heart and lung issues and was recently in the hospital to reprogram his defibrillator. He needs almost 24 hour supervision and has had episodes of weakness since his 3 day visit to the hospital. Two days after he came home, I took our son to the ER and he was kept for 3 days in the hospital. Our son is a lot of help but I need to stay strong to take care of husband and be independent for as long as possible.

  89. Deb - May 15, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    These are very helpful tests and would definitely recommend!

  90. Diane Rollins - May 15, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    My brother had a stroke at the age of 65.He lost total feeling and control of his right arm and walks with a limp. For years I had tried to get him to check his cholesterol, but he was always too busy and didn’t think it necessary. Even though I have to take medication for my high cholesterol, and was informed that it was heredity that was the cause, he ignored my warnings.
    Our generation is lucky to these screenings and everyone should be taking advantage of this opportunity.

  91. marilyn - May 15, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    Help I want to live a long, healthy life.

    I was with my Mother when she had her first stroke and went to a nursing home. Then, two more strokes before she passed. I’d like
    to be around to see my youngest child married and with children. A
    screening would set my mind at ease…for a while. thanks

  95. carole miller - May 15, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    I really would LOVE a Free Stroke Screening so I can live a long, healthy life and be able to have fun with my children and grandchildren for a long time! My father died of a stroke when I was eleven and I have always missed my dad and think that if he had been able to have a test such as this he might be alive today. Thank you.

  129. Lois B. Kelley - May 16, 2014 at 12:48 am

    I am ’77′ yrs. old and since my husband got killed in an automobile accident on 12/26/12, all I do is sleep. I cancell my dr. appt.s, am tired and irritable all of the time. I am also forgetting a lot. I tire easily and have become paranoid that people around me are distrusting. I do not know or understand what is happening to me. I also have loss of appetite and do not enjoy any socializing anymore. I also have high blood pressure and on cholestrol medicince but do not take them daily like I should.

  130. Martha House - May 16, 2014 at 1:29 am

    Really appreciate that this is made available to help people
    understand their bodies better, and hopefully get help when indicated for a better life.

  131. Cheryle Hartman - May 16, 2014 at 2:00 am

  132. Shirley J Taylor - May 16, 2014 at 2:53 am

    I believe faithfully in life line screenings I have had regular screenings every year since 2001 The screenings covers a lot of questions I have about my health and since I only have Medicare Insurance , I don’t have a lot of out of pocket expense, I get the same results as going to my Dr. with less expense.

  133. Rebecca Eirich - May 16, 2014 at 6:15 am

    Fantastic opportunity to take charge of your health. Don’t let it slip by. It could save your life!

  134. Madalyn Coville - May 16, 2014 at 6:50 am

    I have several of the Risk Factors, especially my mother died from a stroke and her father also. Age, high cholesterol, not a lot of exercise and it does scare me.

  135. Jacqueline Hagwood - May 16, 2014 at 7:08 am

    My Mother had a devastating stroke and was bedridden for 5 years. I have high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol and fear the same may happen to me.

  136. Jenny Gutierrez - May 16, 2014 at 8:12 am

    I’m 79 with high cholesterol, blood pressure and strong family history of heart desease. I have medicaid and can’t afford these expensive test. Would love to have this free screening so that I can better prepare myself and my family. Thank you.

  137. Betty Lord - May 16, 2014 at 8:37 am

    I had a screening a few years ago and went to see the Dr and he said come back in 1 year and I didn’t.

  138. Karin Paris - May 16, 2014 at 8:52 am

    Everyone needs this!

  139. Melissa Ford - May 16, 2014 at 9:05 am

    I would love to have this screening test because I am at risk being overweight and high blood pressure. I just went to one of your screenings and they are very informative.

  140. Joe Daliessio - May 16, 2014 at 9:12 am

    I’d like this free screening because I am on a limited income

  141. Junnie Shiotani - May 16, 2014 at 9:18 am

    After reading this information, I feel the need to be screened.

  142. Joel De Leon - May 16, 2014 at 9:33 am

    I had some lifeline screening procedures before and it help me a lot in terms of awareness on lifestyle to prevent lethal diseases.

  143. Donna Johnson - May 16, 2014 at 10:08 am

    I had these tests a couple of years ago and showed some problems. I am now on medication and would like to see if there is improvement.

  144. Sandi Skender - May 16, 2014 at 10:42 am

    I am 70 years old & am at risk for stroke, high blood pressure, breast cancer.

  145. Jeanette K Bagley - May 16, 2014 at 11:17 am

    I’d like to win the free stroke test. I am 74 and only have Medicare Ins.

  146. Norma J Walker - May 16, 2014 at 11:35 am

    I am 68, overweight, cholesterol problems (take medication), lack of exercise, my Mother had many TIA’s (mini strokes) which led to her death and my sister (73) had a stroke (tests at the hospital showed she had suffered another stroke previously). I would like to win the free test for strokes due to my health issues and family history. Thank you for this opportunity.

  147. Suzanne Woods - May 16, 2014 at 11:38 am

    I would really like to win the free stroke screening; my Mom just passed away from a major stroke, that seemingly came out of nowhere

  148. Norma J Walker - May 16, 2014 at 11:39 am

    Due to age, cholesterol problems, lack of exercise, and family history (Mother’s death due to strokes/sister having strokes), I would like to win this free stroke test. Thank you.

  149. D. Holbrook - May 16, 2014 at 11:47 am

    I’m over 60 years old and I’d love to win the free stroke test. Only Medicare and no secondary insurance for coverage.

  150. Joelle Reizes - May 16, 2014 at 11:59 am

    Dear Lois: Please, please talk to your doctor. Symptoms of sadness, fatigue and irritability that do not go away with time are sometimes hallmarks of clinical depression. Especially with your lack of appetite and loss of interest in socializing. These symptoms need to be discussed with a medical professional right away. Please do not hesitate. You can get help. Just please reach out. A doctor will talk with you about all of your symptoms, and do a physical exam. This could help you live life to the fullest again.

  151. Joelle Reizes - May 16, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    Laura – please seek immediate medical attention from a doctor or call 911 if you think you are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack. We hope you are ok!

  152. Linda Sipe - May 16, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Had lost a Grandparent at an early age due to a stroke.

  153. Marshal Arnwine - May 16, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    “Stroke Awareness is Life Assurance.” Most people will take “Their Vehicles” for a “Tune-Up.” But, these same people will not take “Their Bodies” in for an “Examination.” Yes, both are necessary, “Tune-Ups and Examinations.” However, we need to value “Lifeline Screenings as Mandatory in Our Life’s Priorities.” And, Yes, we are all on “Fixed Incomes.” So, I make sure that I budget and save monies for one year to get my “Body’s Life Tune-Ups” with Lifeline Screening. Hopefully, everyone that reads this can “Begin to Plan, Budget and Save for Your Lifeline Screening.” “Your Future depends on Your Choices!”

  154. Ken Mathews - May 16, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    How often should you be tested?

  155. Ken Mathews - May 16, 2014 at 1:13 pm

    What is invovled in the test?

  156. LEO HORBACH - May 16, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    I’VE BEEN WITH LIFELINE SCREENING FOR 6 OR 7 YEARS, THEY ARE A GREAT GROUP. FRIENDLY STAFF, KNOWLWDGEABLE AND VERY WELL ORGANIZED. WORTH THE MONEY.

  157. Joelle Reizes - May 16, 2014 at 1:47 pm

    Hi Ken – Thank you for your questions. We offer a variety of cardiovascular disease screenings, but consider our vascular screening package the “stroke” screening. It looks for both carotid artery blockages and atrial fibrillation, two of the leading causes of stroke. By offering a 6 For Life screening, we also check for blood pressure, the leading cause of stroke, and cholesterol and glucose, which are also important for CV health.

    Typically we feel the screenings are best for someone ages 40-54 with at least two risk factors or 55 and over with at least one. CV risk factors include diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, a family history of CV disease, smoking or living with a smoker, obesity and a lack of exercise. Of course, if a doctor recommended you get the screenings, then that overrides everything. You can learn more at http://www.lifelinescreening.com/stroke.

  158. Marion Hurst - May 16, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    My dad died from a stroke, I would like to be better informed about what I need to do so I do not have a stroke.

  159. Cheryl Eizen - May 16, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    I believe in preventative health care….as the saying goes….”An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure….”

  160. Debbie - May 16, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    I would like to win a free Stroke Screening because my father-in-law and brother-in law have both had strokes recently. I would like to know more about this disease.

  161. J. MELCHER - May 16, 2014 at 5:28 pm

    I seem to have multiple indicators/warnng signs of stroke. 66 years old, overweight, pre-diabetic, no cartilage in my knees = limited activity, family history, etc., etc.. Have received other services in the past. Can’t afford services today.

  162. Vanessa A. - May 16, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    I have had screenings off & on the last 10 years whenever I can afford it…Would love free stroke screening. I had a bad injury a year ago & could barely stand or sit without screaming in pain, which I ended up with circulation problems, but am dealing with them now. Would be great to see if, because of my injury, that I am ok or not.

  163. ellie - May 16, 2014 at 6:00 pm

    It is so important to PREVENT illness when we can. Screening helps save lives.

  164. Donna - May 16, 2014 at 6:09 pm

    I’ve heard that you may not even know that you may have had a stroke. It is worrisome.

  165. margie arico - May 16, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    Both my parents died from a stroke.

  166. margie arico - May 16, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    I would like to have free Life Line Screening tests.

  167. Helen Cain - May 16, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I would like to win a free stroke screening. My Dad, his brother, his brother’s son, my Dad’s parents all died from heart attacks and strokes. It does run in our family.

  168. cheryl sanfedele- kemper - May 16, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    We received the news today, that my only son has cirrhosis,my nerves are shot and my husband is just angry. I would like a health screening because we have no health insurance ,since they cancelled us. I know how important early detection is and wish my boy had an early detection in his liver enzyme tests.

  169. MARTHA SHARP - May 16, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    prevent strokes before they happen,,,,,knowledge is key and I feel that this screening woud really give me an answer one way or the other n if there is a problem I can start to hopefully fix it,,,,,,,

  171. Glenna Roessler - May 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

    I am 71. My mother died from many, many strokes, never a massive one. My husband was just diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer of the esophagus and I cannot afford even the 50% off screening while paying all of his doctor and hospital bills.
    Lifeline will be in our town on Tuesday, the 20th of May. but cannot afford to go

  172. Dorothy Markley - May 16, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    I just had a birtday on May 13th. I am now 84 years old and want to live a long life. My dad died from a stroke at the age of 68.
    I want to win so I know the information I need to do to prevent a stroke. Thank you
    Dorothy

  173. Diana Netzer - May 16, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    This is a no brained! Since strokes are often preventable with a simple test it should be required.

  174. Elizabeth jaeger - May 17, 2014 at 10:44 am

    Yes, I would like a stroke screening, also caroids screening

  175. s. soley - May 17, 2014 at 10:44 am

  176. Rae Warehime - May 17, 2014 at 11:18 am

    This would be great to win as I am going to have the other tests done in June in my home town. I want to be sure to stay as healthy as I can for the sake of my 6 young grand children 13 and under.

  177. Phyllis Walsh - May 17, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    Reading about how serous strokes can affect a person and alter their daily lives, and knowing strokes could be prevented if a person had only been screened, is why I would love to win the free stroke screening.

  178. Brenda Carlton - May 17, 2014 at 1:36 pm

    I don’t have Facebook or any of the other tweeters or stuff. I’m 63 and I have high blood pressure and I just started taking cholesterol medicine. I would love a free screening, I have had lifeline screenings before.

  179. Suzanne Lintner - May 17, 2014 at 4:37 pm

  183. Joy Farrell Long - May 18, 2014 at 3:04 am

    I also have high blood pressure, although no doctor has ever prescribed medication of this condition. Additionally, I am overweight but have been exercising more and have recently lost 15 pounds.

  184. Barry Schulz - May 18, 2014 at 9:29 am

    Looking forward to having a screening!!

  185. Janice Radford - May 18, 2014 at 10:39 am

    I never make time for important stuff like this. If I won it, I would have to take time.

  186. Sharon DeMarco - May 18, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    I had a screening several years ago and it was very informative. I had a stroke in 2000 so it would be very beneficial to have another one especially free since I am now on social security.

  187. Sheila Runyon - May 18, 2014 at 1:07 pm

    I Need the screening stokes run in my family history

  188. Sheila Runyon - May 18, 2014 at 1:08 pm

  189. sylvia sheppard - May 18, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    my mom had a stroke, i am her caretaker its a scary thing.I KNOW I NEED TO HAVE A SCREENING. I AM NOT WORKING SO A FREE SCREENING WOULD BE GREAT.

  191. Cindy Lewis - May 18, 2014 at 3:43 pm

  192. Steve Wintner - May 18, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    I never win anything and so If I win this free screening I might just have a heart attack.

  193. Jacalyn R. Shull - May 18, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    My brother died of a stroke the day after we celebrated his 70th birthday. My Father died suddenly at 65. I never understood why. I will be 73 this week on the 21st. I am concerned about my risk for a stroke. I know I do have high blood pressure and swelling in my legs. I think I need the kidney screen as well. My Mother died suddenly (within 24 hours) of Congestive Heart Failure and Her Mother died of Kidney ds in her early 40s.

  194. Laura - May 18, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    I could use a free stroke screening, especially since I am moderately sedentary, over 55, have strokes in my family history, and have had shingles in my eye. I have used your screening before, but it was a few years ago and having another would help me to assess my health risks and current condition. Thank you for the offer to enter the giveaway.:)

  195. Marlene Fischette - May 18, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    I have been using Life Line screening for the last three years. I think it is a good prevention tool.

  196. Doris Bernstein - May 18, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    I’m over 55, my mother had some TIA’s,my father had a major heart attack, and I’ve never had this screening.

    It’s time for me to assess my risk Winning a free screening would assure my getting this done, sooner rather than later, before it’s too late.

  197. Paula Mason - May 18, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    I have a family history of strokes and would like to know my risk. I want to be entered into the contest for a free stroke screening.

    Thank you.

  198. Constance Clapper - May 19, 2014 at 10:22 am

    I consulted my physician before my first screening. She said I should certainly have it done. The results tell her what she needs to know to treat me, and the cost is much better than if she “ordered” it done via my insurance plan.
    Thank you, ccc

  199. Patricia Lowenthal - May 19, 2014 at 11:49 am

    Please enter me in the FREE Stroke Screening

  200. Pamela Thacker - May 19, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    I am so glad you offer health screenings. A lot of the times people just can’t afford tests at the doctor’s office. I think you all provide a quality service at a reasonable price.

  201. Denise Porter - May 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    Would like to win also!!

  202. Tamera - May 19, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    I have enjoyed the feeling of knowing if I am at risk before with the screenings Life Line does. I feel that I am still at risk, but I like it when they tell me that I am still doing good. I would like to win a free screening for reasurrance. Thank for considering me.

  203. Eddie Andrade - May 20, 2014 at 2:06 pm

  205. Jan Donovan - May 22, 2014 at 8:34 am

    Life Line Screenings has made a difference in my life. I have had concerns put to rest and a health issue found and now treated. My husband lost his job four years ago and our daughter has moved in with us. I am the sole support for my family and I need to be sure I am as healthy as possible. There is a history of heart and circulation problems in the family and some members have suffered strokes. With money so tight, I would really appreciate winning the free screening to give my family peace of mind.

  206. Charlotte Z. Buchmann - May 25, 2014 at 9:28 am

    You have saved my lie twice and I have had 2 carotid surgeries because of you. I want to continued being screened by you again, very soon. I want to make an appointment at a place near my home in Fair Lawn, NJ. Kindly tell me what phone number to call.

    Free stroke screening would be greatly appreciated. I often recommend your services to friends, colleagues and even to acquaintances!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  207. Rozalie Palan - May 27, 2014 at 8:45 am

  212. Helen - May 28, 2014 at 10:49 am

    Thank you for this free giveaway. I, like so many women, do not proactively take care of ourselves. This would get me onto the road of prevention and awareness.

  213. Jean Wrosch - May 28, 2014 at 11:09 am

    Believe in having Life Screening done to discover problems before they become worse.

  214. lindy blackburn - May 28, 2014 at 11:50 am

I have been in cardiac rehab for 4 years and am doing well right now. However, I am now diabetic. I live an active life style but have problems with hypertension and take 3 meds. to control it. Thanks for considering me for the screening. Lifeline saved my life several years ago and I go every year.

  219. Lana - May 28, 2014 at 1:01 pm

    I have at least four of the risk factors! That’s scary, so this would be a much needed screening for me.

  236. Pamila Masters - May 31, 2014 at 6:55 am

    It truly does save lives. I would love to win a free stroke screening…I have talked to many people who stated their lives have been saved due to screening with Life Line Screening. I have risk factors too.

  238. Donna - May 31, 2014 at 7:05 pm

  239. Chris Browne - June 4, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    Since I and my family already pay heavily for health insurance, it will help us greatly to have this screening as a gift!
