Very proud to know about our local chapter and to have met the Director. I think great support is needed. for this disease and for all the professionals who work with those affected by stroke. I have been fortunate enough to participate in a few fund raising events this year and was very proud to do so. Carrie is doing a great job raising awareness and has great support in her community. I hope to stay very involved with KSISA in the future in many ways.

I am proud to have the privilege of sitting on the board of the Ky and Southern Indiana Stroke Association. I have been a member of the board and have known Carrie Orman, the Executive Director, for close to 3 years now. Carrie works tirelessly to create awareness of the help and resources this organization can provide for anyone that has been affected by a stroke. She does this by overseeing fundraising and working tirelessly one event right after another. Her passion for this cause is evident as I have noticed she works many hours and takes a modest salary for her many efforts. She relies heavily on volunteers to help her and shows great appreciation for those that do volunteer their time to help this wonderful organization.

I recently moved to Louisville, KY and the day that I was packing the truck to move, my mom had a stroke. My grandma passed after having multiple strokes and we found out that my mom has had multiple strokes and didn't even know it. I wanted to become involved with an organization that helped to educate people on prevention, signs, warnings, etc., and my limited time with KSISA has shown me that they work very hard to give back to their community and the stroke patients and families that need the support. I am very impressed by their efforts. KSISA is the type of organization that you want to work with to provide them with more help/resources to be able to educate and serve more people.

KSISA does a tremendous job of getting out and educating the public about every aspect of strokes. If any business or group of any kind wants them on site, they are there in a heartbeat. I have been volunteering with them for over five years now. Unlike some, I don't have a family member or close friend that has had a stroke. What I have learned over the years is that strokes can touch anyone at any age, even if they are in good physical shape. Knowing the symptoms and getting immediate assistance is one of many of the important issues KSISA gets out there. Also providing excellent resouces so individuals can follow up with their concerns. In addition KSISA does amazing things with the small funding they receive. They wholeheartedly deserve the recognition fitting of their work.

My mom had a stroke in 2008, and shortly after I got involved with KSISA. This organization is very close to my heart, and the work they do makes such a huge difference in the lives of so many. Stroke affects everyone differently; but, no matter the effects, your life is changed forever. The support system that KSISA provides is vital for those living with stroke, along with friends and family, to move forward.

Review from Guidestar
February 3, 2011

I worked with this organization to provide a statewide stroke awareness program during the baseball season in 2010. We collaborated with the Heart and Stroke prevention team in our state. We attended 4 minor league baseball games at each of our minor league teams. We provided educational information, video PSA, 1:1 interactions with professionals across the state providing a free blood pressure reading and stroke prevention information. In all of my interactions with this organization I felt there was a personal and professional commitment on behalf of the staff. They had statewide partnerships willing to stand in the hot sun and interact with attendees at the game. They are very professional in their interactions and committed to their mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The above mentioned awareness campaign and at other health fairs across the state. We identified over 100 people with risk factors at one game.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure they had more funding.

I have been serving on the Kentucky and So. IN Stroke Association Board since we started the chapter of NSA here. NSA was great to help get us started. We have continued to grow and continue to fulfill our mission to provide education regarding stroke risks, symptoms and prevention. I work with stroke patients every day in my job as a rehab social worker and know how important it is to educate our community, our state, and our region. KSISA will continue to strive to educate and assist those impacted by stroke.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

KSISA has been great to supply education materials and help with our stroke support group, including providing scholarship money for stroke survivors to go to camp.

My family has been touched by stroke several times, and I work with hundreds of victims of stroke throughout healthcare careers. A stroke can be devastating, but not being aware of the risks, or signs and symtoms to seek immediate help is unacceptable.

As a board member of the Kentucky and Southern Indiana Stroke Association, this organization assist many people within out community to educate them on prevention and to assist with recovery. The KSISA strives to educate everyone from children to adults. This mission is accomplished through public speaking, educational events, sponsorship of stroke clubs and camps, health fairs and much more. It is a worthy organization to support through time, treasure and talent.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping people learn more to prevent and act fast in the event of a stroke. I had a grandmother who had numerous strokes. I wish this information would have been available to her and our family.

As a stroke survivor, I am so thankful for KSISA and the support they gave me. My desire is that stroke awareness becomes so obvious to this community that everyone reacts immediately to the symptoms, and.....KSISA is striving to this end. Thanks for the leadership of KSISA in taking this desire seriously.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the health fairs by distributing and discussing stroke with interested community members.
