Faces of Stroke

By Lisa Pogue

As stroke survivors and their loved ones know: stroke does not discriminate. Faces of Stroke was launched in 2011 as a public awareness campaign to educate others and show the personal side of stroke—real people, real stories of struggles and triumphs that show the many different aspects of the stroke experience.

Faces of Stroke has generated astounding dialogue and support for those involved. The campaign features individual online profiles, a web-based gallery for browsing that includes categories for caregivers, survivors and healthcare professionals, and the ability for anyone to upload his or her own story and photo for inclusion in the gallery. Browse the many Faces and share your own story at www.stroke.org/faces.
