Washington D.C. Hears from Stroke Advocates

The Stroke Advocacy Network was created to give stroke survivors, caregivers, 
healthcare professionals and others touched by stroke, a voice in Washington, D.C. Since its recent launch, more than 1,000 people have joined the Stroke Advocacy Network. Those people together have sent hundreds of messages to members of Congress about healthcare regulations, budget issues and stroke awareness.

Using the tools found online, these individuals have raised awareness about stroke and healthcare needs of stroke patients and survivors. They have taken action to ask their elected officials to vote for changes in federal healthcare programs that would help ensure that they get the care they desperately need.

If you haven’t joined the Stroke Advocacy Network yet, add your voice to those who have already taken action. Join the Network today! Join by visiting National Stroke Association’s website: stroke.org/advocate. Encourage your friends and family to join the Stroke Advocacy Network with you and to add their voices to your own. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of stroke survivors.

Faces Campaign Update

This year’s National Stroke Awareness Month efforts brought together a tremendous community of inspiration among stroke champions through the Faces of Stroke campaign. The campaign aims to show the inside stories of stroke through personal experiences and photos. With more than 800 stories submitted for consideration to be featured in May, National Stroke Association plans to continue showcasing Faces profiles throughout 2011 on stroke.org, Facebook and Twitter.

Upload your own story and photo about your stroke experience and join the inspiring online gallery and community. Visit stroke.org/faces for more information.
