Sarah had an unexpected ischemic stroke when she was 18. She now suffers from aphasia, a communication disorder.

Over million people in the USA have aphasia, and over 350 thousand in the UK.

Every 11 minutes, in the UK, 3 people will have a stroke. One of them will have aphasia.

More young people are suffering strokes. The probable reason for Sarah's stroke was a PFO, a hole in the heart. This was only discovered after the stroke, when Sarah had a barrage of tests to try to find the cause. The hole was closed using an amplatzer device, in November 2009.

We hope that this video might help other young people in a similar situation. I spent hours and hours online, looking for support and answers in the darkest days when Sarah was in hospital.
