    Comedian Patrice O'Neal suffered a stroke last week, comedian Jim Norton told the "Opie & Anthony Show," on which O'Neal was a regular.

    I don't know this entertainer but I was alarmed that a 41 year old had suffered a stroke and thought to post it.
    High blood pressure, diabetes, smoking are known contributors.
    My dad died from a stroke at 54.

      That is sad, Nate Dogg was 38 when he had his first stroke, he died this past year.

    I have a neighbour who had a stroke in her 20s, and I remember a woman in my Spanish class, whose granddaughter had had a stroke at the age of 4.  People always assume that these things only happen to the elderly, but this isn't the case.
