Researchers at The University of Texas, Health Sciences Center at Houston UTHealth have created this most important video. The program humanizes stroke survivors and families by telling their stories to educate the public about the importance of early recognition and treatment. This video is an honest and poignant exploration of the impact of strokes on the lives of six couples. The couples, ranging in age from their early 40s to their Late 70s, are interviewed two to four years after their strokes. They discuss the impact of the stroke on their lives and relationships. They explore topics such as intimacy, finances, depression, pain, frustration, fear, job loss, and daily struggles. Despite their suffering, they reveal the ability of the human spirit to maintain hope and to work for a better future.
