According to the World Stroke Organization (WSO), one in six people worldwide will have a stroke in their lifetime. But it’s not just the “one” who is affected by stroke. Stroke impacts the lives of caregivers, family and close friends– those on the frontlines providing supportive care- since recovery can take months or years.
Join us on World Stroke Day as we promote stroke awareness and provide education and support for stroke survivors and their families. Did you know?
The WSO leads the global fight against stroke, providing access to stroke care and promoting stroke research and education to improve the care of stroke survivors. For more information about stroke prevention programs around the country, visit http://www.cdc.gov/stroke/cdc_addresses.htm.
