Raising Awareness of

Stroke in Young People


Raise Awareness

Our main focus is raising awareness of stroke in young people. In May, we dye the most famous fountain in Kansas City bright orange! Later in the year, we host a massive auto show to raise awareness that stroke can happen to anyone, even young people.

Build Communities

We have young stroke survivors who have shared their stories from coast to coast on our story page. We encourage survivors to meet together and discuss life with people who actually know what they’re going through. We consider you a young stroke survivor if you have had a stroke under 45.

Help Others

Every year we ask other organizations to participate in our events. We provide them with a platform to raise money for their cause and help us raise awareness of stroke in young people. 

Advance His Kingdom

We believe in The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Gospel provides you eternal life and freedom to overcome struggles of this world through grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone. The Gospel is all we have and we are always open to talk about it.

Launch a 100% full attack on depression. It's real, it's strong, and it's normal.

I want to share my story and help others. The uniqueness of my stroke, the early diagnosis and prognosis of recovery, the rehabilitation process and the post stroke work, I want to share my experiences with others.

Never tell yourself you are not going to be able to do something.

I like to tell people that the best way to recover from a stroke is to be patient and positive; it’s all about their attitude.

My family and close friends definitely helped me through this difficult and confusing time, however, when my family could not be there I had absolutely amazing nurses that I will NEVER forget.
