Welcome to STROKEFOCUS®, operated by Wohaula, LLC, a California limited liability company (the “Company,” “Strokefocus,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).
Strokefocus endeavors to support individuals who have suffered from a stroke or a traumatic brain injury, their family members and their friends (collectively, the “Survivors” and individually a “Survivor”) through its Platform by providing them with access to resources, information related to the recovery and rehabilitation process, emotional support, and the opportunity to communicate with other Survivors and local Support Groups (individually a “Support Group,” collectively, the “Support Groups”). By creating an account (see Section 3), you agree to comply with this Agreement and to treat your fellow Survivors with respect, compassion and kindness.
