Caregivers and families are never fully ready or know what to do after a stroke occurs. Recovery can be long and complicated. The resources and support that the Kentuckiana Stoke Association provides give families hope.

Kentuckiana Stroke Association is fulfilling such an important mission! We have made strides in reducing stroke mortality but incidence is not decreasing. Stroke is the #1 cause of disability and is 80% preventable. Education to the public about how to control risk factors and prevent stroke is indispensable! We need more of this work in the community!

This organization's role in helping people to understand and prevent strokes is a huge service to the Ky & Southern In people. The fearless leader, Carrie Orman, never seems to sleep. She is dedicated to this organization way more than she is probably expected to be!!! As a 2 stroke survivor, I know how much the education and information the Kentucky & Southern Indiana Stroke Association provides is needed & needs to keep reiterating to everyone!!! Great job!

This organization's dedication to educating Kentucky and Southern Indiana residents about stroke is outstanding. No opportunity is ever missed to have representatives appear at community and organizational gatherings to provide information that will inform and educate. Led by a dynamic one-woman executive director, Carrie Orman, the Kentucky and Southern Indiana Stroke Association's outreach and effectiveness are even more astounding. She has the support of a cadre of volunteers and professionals who always answer her calls to rally in support of stoke education.

The KSISA is a wonderful organization doing amazing outreach on a very little budget. It serves as a oasis for those struggling to find resources and support after a stroke has affected themselves or their family. It's volunteer troops are a great group of people who are neither wealthy or economically status, but work because they truly care about people who have had a stroke.

One of my very best friends had a stroke when she had her first child at 22 years of age - 38 years ago. She is the reason that I am a donor of KSISA. The organization reaches out to educate and to help victims reach their full potential. I am a close observer of the hard work that goes on within the organization. I appreciate their dedication and commitment.
