Let Your Voice Be Heard
National Stroke Association Initiating Advocacy Program

Has your health insurance stopped paying for the rehabilitation care you need? Are you with­out health insurance and unable to get access to the medical treatment you deserve? Do you know what kind of recovery support you need, but have no idea where to go or whom to talk to?

If your answer to any of these is “yes,” then join National Stroke Association’s effort to create a strong, proud and influential survivor community. This is your opportunity to help make a real difference in the lives of stroke survivors and caregivers everywhere.

While National Stroke Association has always maintained an unwavering voice in speaking out on behalf of stroke survivors, we realize that it is now more important than ever to expand and strengthen our advocacy efforts.

National Stroke Association is developing a Stroke Survivor Advocacy Initiative — where we will work side-by-side with stroke survivors and caregiv­ers to ensure dignity for survivors and improve their quality of life. We need your invaluable individual input and participation to make this a successful and truly meaningful effort.

To ensure that we clearly understand the most critical needs of stroke survivors and caregivers and to gain insight into how you want to be involved in our Stroke Survivor Advocacy Initiative, we invite all stroke survivors, caregivers and support group leaders to complete a short survey found at stroke.org/survey.

While we cannot promise to immediately address every individual’s needs, National Stroke Association is dedicated to listening, informing, supporting and organizing around the key issues for which we can make the biggest difference. We thank you for your participation in this important survey and for your continued support in our future efforts.

National Stroke Association is the only national nonprofit that focuses 100 percent of its resources on reducing the incidence and impact of stroke. Our organization has 25 years of experience in supporting survivors, caregivers and stroke care professionals. Join us as we work to increase the visibility and improve the daily lives of all stroke survivors. Go to stroke.org/survey to make sure your voice is heard!
