Help rebuild lives after stroke

The Stroke Association supports people to live the best life they can after stroke. But rebuilding lives is a team effort and we need your help. 

When Alex had a stroke in June 2022, his life and the lives of his wife, Adebisi, and their two young children, changed overnight.

Before, Alex had been a busy project manager and hands-on dad. But the stroke left him with weakness in his right arm, sensitivity to noises and smells, and arm spasms. This had a big impact on what he was able to do at home. But by supporting each other and with help from the Stroke Association, the family are finding ways to adapt together.

Alex and Adebisi say: “Stroke happens medically to one person, but it affects the whole family. It was a lot for all of us. But it’s important to come to terms with who you are now and forge a new path.”

There are now 1.3 million stroke survivors in the UK. Thanks to donations from Stroke News readers like you, we can reach more stroke survivors with our specialist support services and fund pioneering research to find life-changing solutions to stroke treatment and care. 

Thank you so much for your support.
