Sean Crane was presented with the Adult Courage Award (65+), sponsored by Vision Express.
The award was in recognition of his passion and commitment in helping other stroke survivors in his community following his stroke in 2014.
As part of his recovery, Sean attended our communication support workshop at Milford-on-Sea War Memorial Hospital. He went on to set up a group for other local stroke survivors in the Community Centre Café. The fortnightly 'Together' communication group now supports a number of people who struggle to find their words after a stroke.
Lost for Words is a campaign to raise awareness and funds to enable the Stroke Association to support people who struggle with communication after a stroke. This year’s Life After Stroke Awards supported this campaign. Text ‘Stroke Awards’ to 70500 to donate £5.
