Luke Perry had a stroke at 52. How unusual is that?

Each year, close to 800,000 people in the United States have a stroke, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most of those are ischemic strokes, meaning blood flow to the brain has been blocked, generally as the result of a clot. The remainder are hemorrhagic strokes, defined as bleeding in the brain.
