Grantham Journal letter: Nominations for Life After Stroke Awards

Have your say

As a long-time supporter of the Stroke Association, I’m calling on your readers to nominate someone who’s been affected by stroke for the charity’s Life After Stroke Awards.

These awards recognise the courage and determination of survivors as they struggle to recover after stroke and celebrate the fantastic support given by carers and volunteers.

I’ve neen personally affected myself and was in danger of having a stroke following a brain aneurysm in 2006. I’m still at very high risk and know how frightening the condition can be. A stroke happens in an instant but its effects last a lifetime. The Stroke Association is doing great work supporting people affected by stroke and celebrating life after stroke.

The closing date is February 28 and you can find out how to make a nomination or get more information by visiting
