Spanish stroke survivor Pilar Redondo works on her recovery 
Pilar Redondo Arribas, 55, walks with a cane and the help of neurological physiotherapist Guissela Rodriguez Palomino during treatment 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. "It's a difficult situation for the whole family. As a daughter, I've had to take on responsibilities before my time, I've had to mature. But when I see how hard she works and how she manages to stand on her feet during therapy, it gives me hope. My mother is very strong-willed" says Redondo's 17-year-old daughter Raquel. 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
