"Because I Care About Stroke..."

by Allyson P. on Monday, October 22, 2012

Did you know Monday, Oct. 29, is World Stroke Day? Have you or a loved one suffered a stroke? As part of World Stroke Day, the American Stroke Association is urging people to reduce the threat of stroke in their lives and the lives of loved ones. The day’s theme — “Because I Care” — celebrates survivors and caregivers and their actions and hope to overcome stroke.

You can help today! Show us why you care about stroke through our World Stroke Day, “Because I Care About Stroke...” photo campaign.  We need at least 40 stroke survivors, caregivers, family members and friends to share inspiring Instagram photos to help us increase stroke awareness. Post a photo with a sign that completes the thought, “Because I Care About Stroke.” The photos can be submitted through Oct. 29 and can include individuals, couples or groups. Make sure to tag your photo with #WorldStrokeDay to be included in our Instagram widget. Learn more by clicking here:
