We probably won't be able to depend on the US government to fund medical research much longer.
This just makes the need to create a Great Stroke association that funds research that much more important. An innovative stroke association would have prepared for this situation 5-10 years ago.
If you expect your children/grandchildren to have a better chance at recovery from stroke you will need to step up to the plate because the current players have failed and will continue to fail. Your ability to buy recovery does not exist so you may try to fund research now.
