The focus of our website is Stroke Awareness. The Henry Clark Stroke Foundation's Mission is to prevent strokes through education. Many strokes are preventable with knowledge, life-style changes and medication. Therefore, we are not involved in research. Our services are provided free to everyone. It is our goal to reach more people. Please help by inviting us to promote stroke awareness to your group (church; school; work and  social).


1. Investigation is underway. Henry O. Clark , Jr. died July 3, 2001 at Detroit Medical Center Harper Hospital in Detroit at 51 years old. He was the face/spokesperson for Harper Hospital's stroke program. It appears to be an intentional death caused by the two nurses (who had a problem with his face being the spokesperson; two doctors (Dr. James Glazier was more interested in a wealthy (per Dr. Glazier) patient and the hospital. Dr. Glazier was the only one not deposed by our attorney. Maybe because he worked for the Detroit FBI. 

Mr. Clark did NOT receive antibiotic prior to his gall badder surgery. An infection occurred and spread throughout his body. And, an hematoma (local swelling or tumor filled with effused blood) occur. After surgery Mr. Clark was not place on a post-surgery floor to get the proper medical care. NO ONE came to help him when his room light was on and when he complained that he could NOT breathe. The two nurses, Nenio and Piper only talked smart to Henry. "Go to sleep you are just tense" stated Nurse Nenio. When Henry asked Nurse Piper for an oxygen mask because he was having difficulty breathing; she said "NO" as they  over coagulant him with a blood thinner. He BLED for TWO DAYS and then died on July 3, 2001. Nurse Piper transferred to St. Joseph Hospital. I must give credit to the anti-coagulant team for their efforts to get the nurses to lower the blood thinner. The nurses would lower the blood thinner then increase level to where Henry felt dizzy. A huge cover-up followed the death of Henry. The cover-up was to spread the lie throughout the city; county; state and country that Henry suffer a second stroke. HE DID NOT! HENRY came through the surgery; up walking and talking. This cover-up included two well-known black  organizations that receive funds from Detroit Medical Center; State of Michigan Department of Community Health and others. An autopsy was performed at Harper Hospital per Mrs.  Clark request. The death certification on Henry's Death page lists hemorrhage for two days. Henry's body may not have gone to the Wayne County Examiner. They presented a form that stated Henry died of "natural causes". A lie! Michigan Department of Community Health retained a physician whose report stated "Henry killed himself". Another lie!. I NEVER gave up hope of getting justice for my husband and my determination is as strong as ever.   In 2011, Detroit Medical Center filed a Motion to "Dismiss with Prejudice" in U.S. Federal Court Detroit. Judge Roberts modify her  Order to "Dismiss Without Prejudice". Mrs. Clark was unaware of this action until late 2014 when she Google Henry's name.
