Happy World Stroke Day MN!

by Anne S. on Monday, October 29, 2012

 Today is World Stroke Day and a great day to remind yourself of the risks and warning signs of stroke.  Visit the American Stroke Association website for a wealth of information about stroke.

Then, let us know what else you’re doing “Because you care” about stroke on World Stroke Day. (LINK:   Join actor, fellow Minnesotan and stroke survivor Kevin Sorbo in our World Stroke Day, “Because I Care About Stroke...” photo campaign.  For seven years, on the popular TV show “Hercules,” Kevin Sorbo embodied the legendary half-god, half-man character from Greek mythology.  But in real life, he suffered three strokes at age 38.

We need stroke survivors, caregivers, family members and friends to share inspiring Instagram photos to help us increase stroke awareness. Post a photo on Instagram with a sign, just like Kevin's featurd here, 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. From more information on this campaign go here:
