Faces of Stroke Story by stroke survivor David Dansereau of know-stroke.org. At age 39, David had a stroke without any know risk factors, except for another lesser known "silent" heart defect that he wants you to know about. Turns out David's first warning sign, or "TIA" was missed when he was 17, by a coach that didn't know the stroke warning signs. David's blog at http://www.know-stroke.org is dedicated to educating students, parents, teachers, and coaches about the "Young Faces of Stroke" and how to act FAST to KNOW STROKE.

A short film of author Larry Pray creating a watercolor painting, while sharing what it's like to recover from stroke. - http://larrypray.com - Pray's book, Thresholds: Connecting Body and Soul After Brain Injury (2012 Ruder Finn Press), written with David Gumm, is for people who've suffered from brain injury of all types and those who love and care for them. His watercolor paintings, which became his own therapy, illustrate the book.
Larry is a survivor. He has lived with Type One Diabetes for over 50 years, has survived two heart attacks and not one but two strokes. A writer, teacher, pastor, and painter, he has written two other books, Journey of a Diabetic (1983, Simon & Schuster) and, with Gary Gunderson, The Leading Causes of Life (Abingdon, 2008). His writing addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual side of healing, from his own personal experiences.
This documentary was shot in Larry's apartment building in Minneapolis by his brother, filmmaker Doug Pray in January 2013. The music is by composer Garron Chang.

Channel 25 WPBF came to my house on Thanksgiving Day 2012 to hear the story of my miraculous Stroke Survival. It was truly a Thanksgiving I'll never forget. On November 14th, I was transported to the St. Mary's Stroke Trama Unit in West Palm Beach with a clot in the rear of my brain. I had right side paralysis and could not speak. Dr. Malek performed interventional surgery to remove the clot in my Basilar Artery. I was admitted as a Category 21 Stroke victim. After surgery I was rated a "0" with no stroke after affects. Glory to God!
