Paul Pollock interview

What does it mean to you to be named a finalist in the Stroke Awards?

I am very honoured to be named a finalist.

How has stroke impacted your life?

It made me take better care of myself.

Why is raising awareness about stroke important to you? 

It is important to me so nobody has to go through what I did. 

What inspired you in your recovery?

My family and friends inspired me in my recovery.

What is one thing you would like people to know about stroke? 

Greater awareness about stroke. I didn’t know the signs when I was having a stroke, plus people should know that young or old people can have strokes.
