Volunteer to Tell Your Story About Stroke

Description

We need people to tell us their own stories of how they have been impacted by stroke, to help us to raise awareness in the media and elsewhere. When we want to talk about stroke, we find that people are more inclined to listen if we use real stories that are told by people affected by stroke. Can you help us to do that?
