Spanish stroke survivor Pilar Redondo works on her recovery 
Pilar Redondo Arribas, 55, and neuropsychologist Johanna Moreno embrace as Redondo gets ready to go home after her round of daily therapy sessions at Casaverde Neurological and Physical Rehabilitation Center in Navalcarnero, Spain, October 20, 2022. Redondo suffered a stroke last year which caused her to spend two weeks at a hospital intensive care unit. The stroke caused paralysis and spasticity in the right side of her body as well as aphasia, which affects her ability to communicate verbally. She does daily rehabilitation sessions to help improve her quality of life. "Pilar is incredibly resilient and she always has the best attitude. That's very important for her recovery process" says Moreno. According to World Stroke Organisation, 1 out of 4 people over 25 will have a stroke in their lifetime. World Stroke Day is observed on October 29 to raise awareness about the high rates, the risk factors, and the signs of stroke to better prevent and support survivors. REUTERS/Susana Vera
