National Stroke Awareness Month 2017
Stroke can happen at any age.

Young Stroke: An Unexpected Reality

May is National Stroke Awareness Month when the National Stroke Association is turning its attention to the alarming number of strokes in young Americans. Over the last decade, there has been a spike of 44% in the number of young Americans (under 45 years) hospitalized due to stroke. Our animated video, “Young Stroke: An Unexpected Reality,” focuses on the unique challenges faced by young stroke survivors and offers a wide range of resources to support stroke survivors in their recovery journeys.

She chose the National Stroke Association as her charity after experiencing a rare cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) which if left untreated could have resulted in a stroke.
