Stroke Education 

We believe that it is our responsibility to educate our society about stroke.  Therefore, we have created a stroke education web site. These pages have all the basics when it comes to living a healthy life that can reduce the chance of stroke, stroke warning signs, statistics about stroke and all of the essentials information you need to know about stroke. 

One of our Community Outreach Projects was to have members create quilt squares and from that we had several large display quilts made.  All of this was for the raising of stroke awareness whenever the quilts were displayed.  Feel free to browse through them by clicking on the link above. 

We feel that it is necessary to help raise stroke awareness by being able to physically display various items that can be worn.  So we had several items made with the stroke awareness message.  These items are not sold for a profit.  We simply want people to purchase these products and wear them proudly.
