Stroke survivor to host book signing at Inova stroke prevention lecture October 10

After a Stroke, He Now Shares His Message of Prevention and Hope

Stroke survivor and philanthropist Mark Moore will be giving away signed copies of his book, A Stroke of Faith, at a free Inova Stroke Prevention event October 10, 2017

Philanthropist and Northern Virginia resident Mark Moore was a hard-charging business owner backphoto of Mark Moore signing his book "A Stroke of Faith" in 2007 when two strokes changed everything.

“Until I suffered my strokes, I thought I was in charge of it all,” he says. “Then, I realized that I am not so powerful. Thanks to my faith, my family and friends, and the wonderful care I received at Inova, I was able to move on from my health crisis and start a new chapter in my life.”

Mark, 56, a father of two who is now retired, describes his ordeal and subsequent transformation in a book, “A Stroke of Faith,” which was published in April. Mark received stroke care at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital (IMVH). He and his wife, Brenda, subsequently provided funding to help kick off support for a new IMVH patient tower, which provides amenities for Inova Rehabilitation Center and Inova Joint Replacement Center.

“I can’t say enough about the treatment I received following my strokes, which helped me to be the person I am today,” he says.

The book is a way to help other stroke survivors, he says. As the National Ambassador for the American Heart Association’s Empowered to Serve program, he also is speaking around the country about his faith, stroke prevention and stroke recovery.
