“The way I look at it, we’re all connected, one body with many parts,” Franklin says. “I can relate to the choir but also to the corner. A man who’s a missionary to China can be doing the same work as a man on stage at Radio City.”
“Stroke is a serious health issue that is claiming the lives of our loved ones and we’re bringing increased awareness to help stop this devastation in our communities,” continues Kirk. “It’s time to stand up and do something about the thousands of people who are dying every year from stroke.”
