Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

NATIONAL STROKE ASSOCIATION & AMERICAN STROKE ASSOCIATION join up

Well we probably now have only one fucking failure of stroke association in the US rather than two. I'm sure that the 168.8 million the ASA spent was wasted since there was NO stroke strategy being followed to solve all the problems in stroke. If they were any good at all they would publicly release contacts for the board of directors so survivors can influence what they set as the direction for the combined association.

Thank you for your past support of the National Stroke Association (NSA). For more than 35 years of independent operation, the NSA has helped countless patients, families, and caregivers. As we look to the future, the NSA’s board of directors has decided that the best opportunity for continued success and growth is to fold our efforts into those of the American Stroke Association (ASA), a division of the American Heart Association (AHA). Our common goal remains—to reduce death and disability from stroke.(Where the fuck is the strategy  you are following to do just that?) This will ensure that our combined resources are working harder to reduce the toll that stroke takes on families, communities and our nation by eliminating the redundancies of separate operations and infrastructures.
The ASA spent $168.8 million last year on stroke research, advocacy, public and professional education, treatment and recovery efforts, and more. With your continued support, we can do even more.
Moving forward, if you’d like to continue to get the latest updates and insights on stroke, we encourage you to subscribe to the American Stroke Association's Together to End Stroke e-newsletter by clicking here.
For questions or concerns about NSA donations and events or information about the ASA, please contact Stephanie Mohl at Stephanie.Mohl@heart.org, 202.288.8580.
