Share your stroke story

Thank you for thinking of sharing your stroke victory story.

Below are some guidelines to help you provide us with the information we need about your story.

  • Reading or listening stroke stories is encouraging for other stroke survivors and families.  Whether it’s climbing the stairs in your house to cooking a meal to running a marathon to learning to speak again, other stroke families may relate to your story, learn from you and find out about resources.
  • Your story will be uploaded onto the Pacific Stroke Association’s website. Please make sure you click the permissions box before submitting.
  •  Please note if you are a caregiver or family member submitting a story on behalf of a stroke survivor, please complete the relevant sections as well.

Tips for submitting videos or photographs

A picture can tell a thousand words. Action shots will capture readers’ interest and inspire them to read your story much more than a head shot. Try and capture the person "doing" an activity. Don't be afraid to use humor in your photos. Videos should be high quality and no more than 2 minutes long. We will use your photo with your story. So please think about a caption and ensure you have the permission of everyone in the photo so that we can use it on our website. Make sure your photos are clear and in focus. All images need to be high resolution, the bigger the better. Please send in jpg or tif format. Please send your photo to: Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please do not forget to provide a caption for your photo and everyone’s name in the picture.

I give my permission to Pacific Stroke Association to post my story and any photographs I have supplied on the Pacific Stroke Association materials and on the Pacific Stroke Association website. I understand that I will not receive any payment or royalties for this. Pacific Stroke Association reserves the right to use or not use any stories submitted.*
