When Charles Louis had an excruciating headache like he’d never had before, he drove himself to the hospital. It turned out to be a stroke.

Charles had risk factors for stroke, but did not know anything about stroke.

He now serves as a Faces of Stroke Ambassador for National Stroke Association, with the goal of making others aware of risk factors and symptoms.
