Nom­i­nate your he­roes

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS - Carol Bott Direc­tor of the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion in Wales

WHEN a stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. Re­cov­ery is tough, but with the right spe­cial­ist sup­port and huge amounts of courage, the brain can adapt and peo­ple adapt to their new nor­mal.

Ev­ery year, the Stroke As­so­ci­a­tion hosts the UK Life Af­ter Stroke Awards to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the lives of all those af­fected by stroke. The awards are for peo­ple who have demon­strated in­spi­ra­tional courage in over­com­ing the dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects of stroke. We also com­mend car­ers, vol­un­teers, stroke clubs and groups and health pro­fes­sion­als who are with stroke sur­vivors ev­ery step of the way.

If you know some­one who’s been in­spi­ra­tional to oth­ers, nom­i­nate them for a Life Af­ter Stroke Award and share their story with us. Whether they’re a stroke sur­vivor, carer, vol­un­teer, stroke club or group, fundraiser or a pro­fes­sional, nom­i­nate your stroke hero by Fri­day, May 24.
