SSEEO’s members have been stupendous. SSEEO has been there to answer my “stupid” questions with brutal, helpful honesty and helped me to navigate my new life. SSEEO has provided me with useful, relevant materials. I am so appreciative!

I am an SLP. I listened and enjoyed the lunch and learn series on Psychological Effects of Stroke. I think this contained helpful information. Is there a way to get a written copy of the talk to provide to patients? 

Thanks in advance. 

Thanks for getting back to me. I did see that you can listen— that is great. I will try and get my patients to log on to your website and listen—the survivor story was a plus to hear. 

Thanks for all you do…..therapists appreciate it!!

SSEEO gave a wonderful presentation on stroke awareness. The stroke survivor stories were heartfelt, touching, and moving.  Their stories were heart wrenching but you could see how these survivors are fighters and advocates for  stroke prevention.   The panel that presented was passionate about getting the message out that stroke can happen at any age and to be aware of the symptoms in order to act quickly at first warning signs.  This presentation was truly a blessing to everyone that attend as it brought up awareness that stroke can happen to anyone at any time.  I would recommend to any company, no matter the size or industry, to have SSEEO come and talk to their employees as the message is critical and of great importance.

Even though it is now 2019 and a lot of things have not been posted I still found SSEEO a very helpful site and inspiring as a Massive Stroke Survivor of an Ischemic/Hemorrhagic Stroke May 21st. 2018 and 5 TIA's 3 Concussions and feel so blessed thankful to be here to tell. God bless all who have suffered it's nothing to take lightly and has worn me out but we don't give up but keep faith hope and pray for a Cure. . ❤️🎗

On behalf of Northern Illinois Chapter of the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses, I would like to thank SSEEO for spending their Saturday afternoon educating healthcare professionals on resources and programs available to survivors and their caregivers. Brian Herbst and Erin Gianaras gave heartfelt testimonies on their courageous journeys as young stroke survivors. Their stories will forever be engraved in our memory, as we join them in their efforts to not only support stroke survivors but to advocate for them as well, ensuring a better quality of life for them and their families.

I’ve been trying to find a neuropsychologist in my area (Canada) for over 10 years now and I still have not been able to find one that is wheelchair accessible and that can help me with my specific problems due to my stroke that I had in 2008 when I was only 34 years old. 

Thank you so much for actually taking the time to reply to my message. I find that you are very professional.
