About Faces of Stroke

Faces of Stroke Banner

National Stroke Association’s Faces of Stroke℠ public awareness campaign aims 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.
