Every year during June, organisations supporting people with aphasia work together to raise awareness. Around a third of people who have a stroke will experience aphasia. Greater awareness can mean easier communication and a better quality of life for a person with aphasia.
In our new advert, survivors describe experiencing life changing strokes in their own words. Stroke is serious, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.
