Young Stroke Survivors Group
Young stroke survivors are looking for others who have been impacted by stroke, something most people associate with their grandparents, not themselves. This group is designed for people who had a stroke under the age of 55. In this group, there is laughter and joy interspersed with occasional moans and groans as we challenge survivors to reach new heights, break records, and set higher goals.
We are here to prove recovery never ends, that the brain can heal, and no one is alone in this journey.
There is a Young Stroke Support Group at RMSC in Littleton, for specific meeting times, here is our support group list!
