Up Again After Stroke

This year the focus of World Stroke Day is on life after stroke. Around 80 million people living in the world today have experienced a stroke and over 50m survivors live with some form of permanent disability as a result. 

While for many, life after stroke won’t be quite the same, our campaign aims to show that, with the right care and support, a meaningful life is still possible. As millions of stroke survivors show us every day, it is possible to get #UpAgainAfterStroke.

While the impact of stroke is different for everyone on 29th October 2018, we want to focus the world’s attention on what unites stroke survivors and caregivers; their resilience and capacity to build on the things that stroke can’t take away and their determination to keep going on the recovery journey.
