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
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!
