A stroke is absolutely NOT sexy, let me be clear so I don’t offend anyone!
Why have we still not made the subject of stroke with politicians, TV and newspaper editors SEXY?
How often do you see more than just a few column inches or online pages dedicated to stroke recovery?
CANCER CHARITIES have successfully given cancer a persona when they talk about giving the illness the ‘V-sign’ on TV.
Yet our national stroke messages seem so utterly boring and not newsworthy, well unless you are a well known celebrity. (Marr, Lauren Bacall, Tarrant, Devey, Jessie J, Sharon Stone,…..). give me strength.
While I’m ranting, why are other cancer charities and governments so preoccupied with stroke prevention?
Sure, prevention is very important, but what about those poor people who didn’t actually manage to prevent their stroke happening in the first place? What messages are out there to help us recover and contribute to society?
Change the record please and start ‘ass kicking stroke’ and redress your stroke marketing messages to help people try to recover more from stroke!
