I WAS delighted to host The Stroke Association’s “Life After Stroke” awards last year. The awards not only recognise the courage and grit people have in the face of such a devastating condition but that of carers and volunteers too.
An estimated 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke each year and they change people’s lives in an instant - affecting them physically, mentally and emotionally forever.
The chances are you already know somebody who has had a stroke and demonstrated outstanding courage and determination in rebuilding their life.
If you do, why not nominate them, a career or volunteer for a 2008 “Life After Stroke” award. The closing date for this year’s award nominations is February 15 2008 - so be quick.
