Ruth had two strokes when she was just 30, which has caused her to experience memory, speech and emotional problems. In this video, you'll hear about Ruth's meeting with researcher Dr Terry Quinn, who is developing five-minute tests to assess memory problems following a stroke.
The video was filmed prior to the coronavirus outbreak.
Stroke research has been badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic. We need funding to research and develop more short, easy tests to identify survivors who are struggling. Without them, it could mean people are sent home without the support they need to rebuild their lives. Please consider making a donation to help us rebuild more lives.
