I am currently in my first year as a student at King Edward VI College. As part of my A-Level choices I have decided to do an EPQ or 'Extended Project Qualification'. For this I have to come up with a topic to research, write a dissertation and give a presentation on this topic. I have chosen a topic of "Strokes in Young People". This is a subject very close to my heart as my mum is a three time young stroke survivor. I feel that many people do not understand the impact that strokes have on young people and actually how common it is. As part of my research I am looking for individual experiences and the impact that it has had on both those who suffered and their families. If anyone is willing to share their story with me it would be extremely useful. If you are part of any other groups that may be able to help me it would be much appreciated if you could share my post. Please message me directly if you are willing to share your experiences or, if you have any questions. Thank you

I had 2 strokes in 2013 at the age of 58. I would be more than happy to share my experience of this and how it has been since then.
