Stroke Awareness Month: Stroke Heroes and Their Stories
Last updated: May 12, 2008
It's National Stroke Awareness Month and the internet's abuzz with information, reminders, and personal stories. Whether you're a stroke survivor, or a caregiver, friend, or family member of someone who's had a stroke or is at risk, there's something of interest for you.
In honor of Stroke Awareness Month, I'll be bringing you the highlights of what's happening in the stroke blogosphere -- and beyond. For starters, here's a roundup of some of the personal blogs I'm loving:
- Mystroke.org, a blog for stroke survivors and their relatives
- Stroke hero, author, and Caring.com expert Cleo Hutton's Stroke Awareness and Recovery
- Caregiver Jean Riva's From The Planet Aphasia
- Caregiver Jellen's Post Stroke
- Stroke hero David Dansereau's Know-Stroke
What blogs are you reading...or writing? I'd love to build our network of resources and friends.
