Working Together for Stroke Victims

At St. Charles, we work hard every day in pursuit of our vision: creating America’s healthiest community, together.

That last word – together – is a key component of our work.

As Oregon’s leading health care organization east of the Cascades, St. Charles plays a major role in the health of the communities we serve. But we can’t do it alone. We need an engaged constituency made up of people who are interested in health issues – the kind of people who not only open an email from their local health system, but also read the latest update from the health system’s CEO. (Thank you for doing so, by the way.)

In this one-of-a-kind collection of stories about surviving and thriving after stroke, people from all over the U.S. tell it like it is about the tragedies and triumphs they experienced after stroke. They speak with candor about their worst days, their grit and resilience, and the profound contentment and unexpected bursts of enthusiasm they feel for life today.
