Sharon Libby, Young Stroke Survivor
Author, Glossary of medical terminology


“I had the chance to talk with Amy Edmunds, Founder of YoungStroke, when I sat next to her on an airplane trip last year. She reminded me that a quarter of all strokes occur in the young. Still, strokes in the young receive relatively little attention in the medical community. Amy also reminded me that the distinct needs of young stroke survivors are often mitigated by current protocols. I am impressed by the positive actions YoungStroke is taking to bring this issue to the forefront.”
