Did you know that 1 in 4 women will have a stroke in her lifetime? And, that up to 75% of stroke survivors experience some level of disability? If that's not alarming enough, strokes are also the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. For all these reasons and more, it's important for women to be proactive about reducing their risk of having a stroke.
There is no question that a stroke can be a life-altering event. For many survivors, regaining their former quality of life can be a real challenge. But thanks to BraEasy, there is now a tool that can help make the journey a little bit easier. Read on to learn more about how this innovative product can help improve your life after stroke.
Our stroke Survivor
Our daughter Jamie had a stroke when she was just nine years old. It was our journey with trying to find Jamie a bra she could put on with one hand that led us to invent a bra that anyone could put on with just one hand.
We have invented a bra you can put on with just one hand and take off with just two fingers. Because nothing else worked for her. When you have had a stroke it impacts on so many things. As a mother I wanted my daughter to be independent because that is what she wanted.
So many women call me to say they can't believe our product is out there. After looking for 12 years Anne called me saying "Your product is amazing, I cant believe that finally someone has invented this for stroke survivors." There are so many stories of women who have searched for years looking for a bra that they can now put on. No longer will Anne need to ask her husband to help her. This is what drives me to keep going with our business.

Medical Definition of a Stroke
A stroke is a sudden interruption in the blood supply of the brain. Most strokes are caused by an abrupt blockage of arteries leading to the brain (ischemic stroke). Other strokes are caused by bleeding into brain tissue when a blood vessel bursts (hemorrhagic stroke). Because stroke occurs rapidly and requires immediate treatment, stroke is also called a brain attack. When the symptoms of a stroke last only a short time (less than an hour), this is called a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or mini-stroke. The effects of a stroke depend on which part of the brain is injured, and how severely it is injured. Strokes may cause sudden weakness, loss of sensation, or difficulty with speaking, seeing, or walking. Since different parts of the brain control different areas and functions, it is usually the area immediately surrounding the stroke that is affected. Sometimes people with stroke have a headache, but stroke can also be completely painless. It is very important to recognize the warning signs of stroke and to get immediate medical attention if they occur.
