I'm a stroke survivor and the winner of the Stroke Association's 2019 Christmas card competition. I painted a Winter scene which includes my dog Frankie, who has been a lifeline and a constant companion throughout my recovery.

Paul's story
I was 40 when I had my stroke. My job before was as an English teacher. But now I can’t read or write, so my job is to help other stroke survivors. Stroke for me was a pause, not the end of the story.

Sean's story
Since the stroke, I’ve struggled with anxiety and I’m tired all the time. I couldn’t cope with work now, so we have to tighten our belts financially. Stroke definitely has an impact on your life, career and finances.
