Survivor Stories

Everyone is on a different journey, but each survivor shares a common goal; 

Take Control of Life After Stroke. 


In these brief conversations we ask each guest to share their stroke story, and tips on how they are managing to take control life after stroke.

We hope these stories will share positive light and enable you with motivation to keep moving forward!
