Lois F.


Caregiver & Family

Besides being a care giver, Lois is also a group leader. Her husband, Klaus, suffered his stroke over four years ago. Since I first met Lois, while Klaus was recovering in hospital rehab, she has executed a pit bull tenacity in seeking the best care available for Klaus and a motherly like embrace for caregivers and survivors to whom she is introduced. She unselfishly travels over two hours to see Klaus exercise at least two times a week at our post-stroke regimen. During that time, she flits around the hospital putting up notices about our support group or calendars instructing people about upcoming events and speakers at our meeting. While I have no computer skills, Lois has kept our group aware of national and worldwide issues concerning stroke and research for same. Whether it be veterans info, modes of transportation, senior or disabled benefits or just plain human interest stories, Lois dives headlong into these points and brings our group up to date on where or when. On a personal note, she partnered with me on a video about stroke and awareness, which we realize will never be shown at Cannes, but thrilled us in its acceptance by the audience we chose to reach, survivors and caregivers. Between the video and personal mentoring she does, Lois F. should be a Face Of Stroke.
