our history

SSEEO always strives to improve the quality of life for current and future stroke survivors by

 building a community that encourages, supports and guides stroke survivors and their families through their stroke journey.  We believe it is essential for survivors and caregivers to play a key role.  As such, we lobby at the local, state and federal level.
