Carol E. Yorke Inspires Stroke Survivors in “Brain Attack: Surviving a Stroke”

“Brain Attack: Surviving a Stroke” is an uplifting story from a woman who refused to bow down to stroke.


Fifteen million people worldwide suffer strokes each year. Five million die and another five million are permanently disabled. These are staggering numbers, and author Carol E. Yorke talks about the potential devastation stroke brings and what a positive outlook can do to help stroke survivors.
The author of “Brain Attack: Surviving a Stroke,” Carol E. Yorke, led a full and busy life until a life-altering event in 2009. Yorke suffered a debilitating stroke, but while it put most of her activities on pause indefinitely, the unfortunate event has led the author to amazing insights about life and how she can reach out to support other stroke survivors.
“Brain Attack: Surviving a Stroke” is the outcome of her positive can-do attitude, which she wants readers to learn from. Yorke is proof that it is okay to feel frustrated about one’s health condition, but it is not okay to wallow in negativity. She talks about pulling through the aftermath of stroke and of reaching out to others even without the capability of walking. Yorke is an inspiration, and any stroke survivor can choose to be an inspiration just as the author continues to be every day.

About the Author
Carol E. Yorke was born in Georgia, USA, and lived the nomadic life of an army brat, living in various states and overseas during her childhood, ultimately landing in Southern California where she now lives with Lulu, her pet Dachshund mix.

She has spent twenty-five years working as a CPA in a variety of public accounting roles, was married three times, and toured West Germany in 1975 with a four-piece band called Hogwood.

In 2009, the author suffered a debilitating stroke, which has led her to devote much of her time to support other stroke survivors and to publish her book, Brain Attack: Surviving a Stroke, in 2015. Yorke has also produced several adult coloring books, which she has found to be very therapeutic.

When she isn’t writing, she enjoys spending time with her five stepchildren, her many friends, and other family. She hopes that she will one day be able to walk again and live in a real house with a special man in her life.
