Stroke changes everything, but so can your support.
Stroke is a leading cause of adult disability in the UK. Lisa's stroke caused a permanent disability called Dystonia - a disorder that causes uncontrolled and constant painful muscle spasms. She goes through Dystonia ‘storms’ - frightening episodes with severe muscle spasms that can last for days, weeks, and even months.
With support from the Stroke Association and sheer determination, Lisa is finding alternative ways to live her life and rebuild it. Lisa says, "Stroke has cost me a lot. But it won't stop me from living." Watch the video to hear her story.
Thanks to the Stroke Association, there is hope for everyone. We’re dedicated to helping stroke survivors like Lisa and their families with the emotional, practical and financial cost of stroke.
