Stroke Heroes

Joining Forces

Exciting changes are coming! With the American Stroke Association proudly carrying the torch for the National Stroke Association, Stroke Heroes will join forces with the “Raising Awareness In Stroke Excellence” (RAISE) Awards to become the Stroke Hero Awards in early 2020. For more details, including the new award categories and timeline, look for updates on this page. Want to share your stroke story?

Stand up and be recognized!

Who has made a major impact in your post-stroke life? Who has gone above and beyond? Whether it’s to recognize small encouragements or big gestures, now’s your chance to say thanks. Our Stroke Hero's program is a public awareness campaign aimed to change the public perceptions of stroke through education and personal stories of those impacted by the fifth leading cause of death.

These stories bring special attention to specific health conditions associated closely with stroke, featuring an issue or concern that stroke survivors and people at risk for stroke may deal with daily.
